Hunting Cthulhu

Another Famous Painting with an SF Title:

Hunting Cthulhu by Hokusai

As an observer will note, the hideous, gigantic, cosmic entity is nowhere to be seen in the actual painting, having disappeared below the whitecaps moments before, leaving the enormous wave in its wake.

One wonders what the intrepid hunters in the boats plan to do if they manage to catch the Great Old One. No doubt it will form the basis for a truly epic haiku.

(Of course it’s actually The Great Wave off Kanagawa, the famous woodblock printing by the Japanese artist Hokusai, created sometime between 1830 and 1833. But what else could be causing that wave that dwarfs Mount Fuji?)

Absurdist Shakespeare

Well, well. Isn’t this strangely appropriate? (Since I do my editing with a red pen and all?) Of course I plugged in the word “edits” since getting back to them after this brief break is on my mind…

William Shakespeare

Will all great Neptune’s oceans wash this blood
Clean from my edits? No, this my edits will rather
The multitudinous seas

Which work of Shakespeare was the original quote from?
