Could H.P Lovecraft be a culture?

I’m just curious what you guys would think if this was considered a online culture? It was prior to the internet, but there is a lot of fan art, fan storys, etc.

An example among thousands.

We’ve got a page for Cthulhu, but I could see the body of the Cthulhu Mythos getting its own page. Emphasis on “Mythos”, here – though influential Lovecraft was, some of the most memorable media came about after he passed on to the eldritch abyss.

…I will unashamedly admit that I want to see this happen. I do hold that Cthulhu should be its own page, regardless.

I’m more surprised about the fact that there isn’t a entry for the Cthulhu Mythos. Let’s face the facts here, The Mythos has not only been referenced in countless amount of times in different media but it also changed the genera of horror by creating the from of horror called Cosmic Horror. Though Cthulhu can still keep his entry, maybe it can be a sub-entry along with old Howard’s entry?

Cthulhu is a meme, while Lovecraft is a culture in which the Cthulhu meme has its origins, so they should be separate related entries. I agree completely.
