Lord of the Rings in the Horror Universe: THE ILLUMINATUS! TRILOGY

12 Feb

Robert E. Wronski, Jr.

Every Friday I will be posting here an excerpt from my book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia.  These excerpts will be entries from the book featuring some of my favorite series, often series you might not expect to find in a book about horror crossovers.

THE ILLUMINATUS! TRILOGY (NOVELS BY ROBERT SHEA AND ROBERT ANTON WILSON)

Release Date: 1975 (Contemporary Setting)

Series: The Illuminatus! Trilogy

Horror Crosses: Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos

Non-Horror Crosses: Beatles; Conan the Barbarian; Kull; Lord of the Rings

Notes: The trilogy is loaded with ties to Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. The main character travels in a Yellow Submarine. The history of the Illuminati includes Conan, Kull, Frodo, and Sauron.
