True Detective: Lost in Dim Carcosa.


True Detective: Lost in Dim Carcosa.

from 15.00

Whether you enjoy the Lovecraftian mythos (in this case that of his predecessor, Robert W. Chambers) or you just enjoy solid noir, detective fiction; True Detective is the best of both. Anyone who knows me knows how ridiculously critical I am of fiction, particularly in fields I enjoy. I cannot recommend this series enough. The second season is a departure (each season stands alone as a miniseries) and was critically panned; it’s still a solid noir, it just couldn’t hold a candle to season one.

What I did here was take some of the more identifiable mythos elements from the show and infuse just a little more detail from the book. See if you can catch the references;

”Along the shore the cloud waves break,

 The twin suns sink behind the lake.

 The shadows lengthen in Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise.

And strange moons circle through the skies.

But stranger still is Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,

where flap the atters of the King.

Must die unheard in Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead;

Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed

shall dry and die in Lost Carcosa.”

  • Cassilda’s Song, Robert W. Chambers.
