That's what I was wondering, having seen and heard references to him ranging from a Metallica song to the User-friendly comic strip. I did some googling and found an online version of "Call of Cthulhu" on some web site. I read it, but I wasn't terribly impressed. It was a nice story and it does sort of make you wonder about your nightmares, but it just wasn't very scary. In your opinions, do the other Cthulhu stories get better or worse? Should I spend the time looking for and reading them?
