The Origins of the Space Gods

Published by Jason Colavito
Many have noted the apparent similarities between the horror fiction of 1930s writer H. P. Lovecraft and the ancient astronaut theories promoted in the work of Erich von Daniken and the History Channel's Ancient Aliens series. In 2005, Jason Colavito's The Cult of Alien Gods proved that the ancient astronaut theory originated in Lovecraft's horror fiction, the so-called "Cthulhu Mythos." Now, Colavito presents a new, updated summary of the path from Lovecraft's fiction to the History Channel's "fact" in this brief, illustrated ebook that asks the question: Ancient astronauts--fact or fiction?
