The Men of Leng are a fictional race in the writings of H. P. Lovecraft.[1][2]

Leng are the primitive, satyr-like inhabitants of the Plateau of Leng in the Dreamlands. They are mentioned throughout Lovecraft's Dream Cycle, especially in the novella The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath (1926).

The Men of Leng appear in The Clock of Dreams and Mad Moon of Dreams, by Brian Lumley.

The ruined city of Sarkomand was their former capital.

The Men of Leng are included in the Pathfinder RPG, where they are known as the Denizens of Leng, a race of creatures who sail across the planes of existence in great black ships, trading strange, flawless rubies and exotic goods from the Realm of Dreams for mortal slaves, to be taken back to Leng for unknown reasons.
