Just in sound - Thu reminds be of Lovecracft's Cthulhu [In reply to] Can't Post


" The Whisperer in Darkness (1930) hints at one of his character's knowing the creatures origins ("I learned whence Cthulhu first came, and why half the great temporary stars of history had flared forth.").[8] The 1931 novella At the Mountains of Madness refers to the "star-spawn of Cthulhu", who warred with another race called the Elder Things before the dawn of man.[12]"

The idea that JRRT read Lovecraft was discussed here:


I don't see any direct connection as JRRT was writing his material at the same time, before, and after Lovecraft published..."Tolkien worked on The Lay of Leithian from the summer of 1925 until September 1931"
