Golden Goblin Press is a fictional publishing company in the Cthulhu Mythos. The publishing house first appeared in Robert E. Howard's short story "The Black Stone" (1931).

Mythos[edit]

Golden Goblin Press was founded in New York in 1908 by two brothers, Samuel and John Addleton, and was named after a small Native American figurine owned by one of the brothers. The publishing company specialized in printing obscure works, most notably Nameless Cults (1909) by Friedrich von Junzt and a translation of Revelations of Hali (1913) by the medium E. S. Bayrolles. A small run of oracle cards called the Codex Coemeterium were produced in 1908, based on passages from the Munich Manual of Demonic Magic. Although the publishing house closed during World War I, it reappeared in Philadelphia a decade later. Among its later publications are C.A. Smith's The Dream of the Spider and the Awakening (1931) and Nathaniel Wingate Peaslee's The Shadow Out of Time (1936).
