cthulhu books

The relationship between human beings and nature is present in everyday life, narrated, mediated, and fictionalized through stories, tales, and myths that define how we inhabit the planet. Words, voices, images, and fiction shape how we relate to what we understand as natural. Cthulhu Books brings together reflections and worlds that derive from distinct perspectives, emerging new ways of talking about nature and suggesting malleable relationships between words and what they describe.

Compost Reader vol. I

From Cthulhu Books, we think of the world to come as a great Compost. Composting as our new relational ontology, as our earthly condition. Composting makes us a single planetary material (humans, beings, objects, technologies). It is the past and it is the future. It is space, place and it is matter. It is a world as a whole rather than as composed of separate natural and social realms, where there are rituals of celebration, entanglements, and interrelationships. To institute means to begin – cultivating consciousness from questions rather than from answers, from uncertainty and doubt. This book speaks about beginnings, about new relationships, about unstable modes of doing, thinking, and being, letting questions spawn new questions.
