THE LAKE MONSTERS OF AMERICA
BY ALLISON MEIER / 22 NOV 2013
People love to fill in mysterious areas of nature with myths of monsters. Early maps had voids of knowledge marked with warnings that “Here be Dragons,” sasquatches are believed to be prowling the thick forests, and legends tell of strange creatures that might be concealed beneath the surface of our lakes. Here we present our map of American lake monsters (view it large here), showing the spread of cryptids that might be lurking in the depths of the waters of the United States.
Click here to view the whole map of the Lake Monsters of America, and perhaps discover what sea serpents and others nautical beasts might be lurking near you. If you would like even more monsters both mythical and real, check out our places around the world related to cryptozoology and fascinating fauna.

Art Spotlight: One Nation Under Cthulhu
On the heels of our “Science of Lovecraft” episode (and related blog content), I thought I’d highlight “One Nation Under Cthulhu.” It’s been making the rounds on the Internet for a while, providing us an apocalyptic, Lovecraftian vision of America as the thrall of the undying cosmic entity of madness we know as Cthulhu.

"Ich glaube, die größte Barmherzigkeit dieser Welt ist die Unfähigkeit des menschlichen Verstandes, alles sinnvoll zueinander in Beziehung zu setzen. Wir leben auf einer friedlichen Insel der Ahnungslosigkeit inmitten schwarzer Meere der Unendlichkeit und es war nicht vorgesehen, dass wir diese Gewässer weit befahren sollen." (HPL)

Fantastic image that makes me reconsider an entity I’m frankly bored with from too much pop culture exposure. /Robert
