Hand of SatanDavid Haden on his blog Tentaclii has recently discussed the possibility that New Hampshire’s Isle of Shoals at least partially inspired Innsmouth’s own Devil Reef. Considering our recent Innsmouth issue, I thought these links might be of interest.

One of the sources he cites is “Legends and Supersitions of the Sea and Sailors” (1885), from which I obtained the lovely image to the right.  Spooky!
