Benjamin Tippit, a genuine mathematician and researcher, has published this paper - it's a.. well I'll quote the first few lines of the abstract:

"In 1928, the late Francis Wayland Thurston published a scandalous manuscript in purport of warning the world of a global conspiracy of occultists. Among the documents he gathered to support his thesis was the personal account of a sailor by the name of Gustaf Johansen, describing an encounter with an extraordinary island. Johansen`s descriptions of his adventures upon the island are fantastic, and are often considered the most enigmatic (and therefore the highlight) of Thurston`s collection of documents.
We contend that all of the credible phenomena which Johansen described may be explained as being the observable consequences of a localized bubble of spacetime curvature...."

This is cleverly timed for Halloween, and (I think) can genuinely add into the existing mythos in an odd way... H.P.L was well read and an enthusiastic follower of the scientific developments of the time, including the theories of relativity and their weird notions (which the paper is ultimately based on). If I can find a copy that isn't 'pay to view the whole thing' I'll post it here.

Please post it if you can, I'll print it, have it bound and placed right next to my precious volume of Unausspreichenlicten Kulten by von Junzt :)

I e-mailed it to a friend, who is an absolute gen-yoo-wine rocket scientist. He can't make heads nor tails of it so far, but he loves it just the same, thank you.
