The Golden Goblin

Joe Broers brings us an extremely obscure Mythos prop- the Golden Goblin. It's based on one of the fictional occult publishers invented by Lovecraft.

The original creation of Golden Goblin Press was a fictional publishing company in the Cthulhu Mythos. The publishing house first appeared in Robert E. Howard's short story "The Black Stone" (1931). Golden Goblin Press was founded in New York in 1908 by two brothers, Samuel and John Addleton, and was named after a small Native American figurine owned by one of the brothers. A story entitled “The Golden Goblins” which featured evil golden goblin idols was written by Manly Wade Wellman and published in Weird Tales, January, 1944.
