Lovecraft only wrote a short fragment of Azathoth. Has anyone (fairly well-known) tried to write the whole story in Lovecraft's style?

  • Would this not go against Lovecraft's copyrights?

    @apoorv: According to my Google Fu, Azathoth was written 1922 and is in the public domain, since the Copyright Term Extension Act only affects works from 1923 and onwards. (In the US.)

    As this is interested in work by authors other than HPL, I've added a new tag which seems appropriate.

The short answer is no. We spent many hours and emailed a large number of people to check on this several years ago when we were doing research for a short movie/story a friend of ours had written.

But there are many writers who have used this creature in their writings, I guess you have already read the wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azathoth
