    An attempt to keep a collection list of ceph books for easy reference. Please feel free to add books or publications (preferably with a where to find reference and review) on anything you would like available. I will add any new items to one of the lists with a primary link but leave additional posts for others to read.

    Also see the Upcoming Presentations on Cephalopod Research thread for current papers and presentations.

    Here is an existing thread with a bit of discussion on some of the books in the hobbyist list

    The Complete Works of HP Lovecraft 1917-1935 HP Lovecraft (free/donate PDF/Kindle/Nook file)
