Untitled[edit]

Note that the proper name has a diaeresis over the "i", as in "Celephaïs". Thus, all references to "Celephais" should be redirected here to be true to the spirit of the intended spelling.

Also, merging "Celephaïs" with "Celephais" eliminates ambiguity and unnecessary duplication.

For reference, I used:

Harms, Daniel. The Enclopedia Cthulhiana, 2nd ed. (Chaosium, Inc.,1998).

Harms bases his work on Arkham House, which publishes corrected versions of Lovecraft's writings from the original manuscripts.

I believe that this official name of this article should be Celephais, with Celephaïs as a redirect. According to WP:NAME, the goal is not "to be true to the spirit of the intended spelling" but to use the form under which most people would ordinarily look for the topic. A Google search for "Celephaïs" turns up mostly instances of "Celephais", particularly if you ignore the WP-derived hits.
Lovecraft's spelling should be used in the text. Nareek 20:02, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Short Story[edit]

There is a short story by H.P. Lovecraft (which is named after Celephais) Synopsis, etc is needed. -Elizabennet 03:57, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

Twilight Zone[edit]

The Twilight Zone episode A Stop at Willoughby has almost the exact same plot as this story, but I do not believe Lovecraft is credited. BeastmasterGeneral 16:06, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

About Kuranes' fate[edit]

Having read the story multiple times and it being one of my most beloved pieces of Lovecraft's work, I've had a totally different synopsis of the ending of the story. I personally interpreted the ending as him dreaming the knights and the city up, while he finally dies and his body somehow ends up into the water and floats onto the shore. Am I totally mistaken or did he indeed die? Please note that I am not a native English speaker, so my grammar and understanding of H.P's terrific work might a bit off. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Seymroth (talkcontribs) 13:35, 26 April 2011 (UTC)
