Special Exhibit: Mysteries of the Antarctic

Phot by Hannes Grobe

In light of the freezing temperatures and winter storm conditions blanketing Arkham, the Museum has organized a special exhibition of materials pertaining to Antarctica. As you may imagine, these largely pertain to events or concepts presented in the H. P. Lovecraft novel At the Mountains of Madness. The number of developments sharing some aspect with the story is striking. For all that is made of Lovecraft's hatred of the modern, his role as fictional prophet for an age not yet arrived isn't entirely dissimilar to that of a Jules Verne, but involving bizarre natural discoveries rather than technological advances.

As they are added, the Antarctica items will be listed below in a quick reference index.
