Call of Cthulhu: Letters from Arkham
The Key and the Gate translation
Author Unknown - Handwritten manuscript 1926
Handwritten translation of book
This handwritten translation by Dr. Moamar Shalad of Miskatonic University is in English and tells of Yog-Sothoth and his manifestation in the form of a multi-headed demon called Ramasekva, who splits worlds apart and devours the survivors. It tells how to make the hallucinogen Soma.
Professor Beaurigard Johanson had Dr. Moamar Shalad of Miskatonic University translate the sanskrit copy of The Key and the Gate in 1926. When Dr. Shalad delivered it to Professor Johanson (who was in Arkham Sanitarium at the time) on October 2, 1926, he advised the man to burn both the translation and the original. Professor Johanson disappeared in December of that year. His whereabouts are currently unknown.
