Leng is spelled the same in Pinyin and Wade-Giles. Wade-Giles was finalized in 1892. (talk) 06:24, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

The "Origins?" section should be deleted, as Pinyin was developed decades after HPL's death. Not only is it original research, it's easily disproved. Genja24 (talk) 05:27, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Why does the page state that *later* Lovecraft moved Leng from the Antarctic to the Dreamlands when the chronology of its appearances show that it was in the Dreamlands in a 1926 story and in Antarctica in a 1936 story? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) . 15:53, 15 Nov 2006 (UTC)

It now says Elder Things instead of Great Old Ones and this is more correct. --Kalasklas 18:12, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)

The story At the Mountains of Madness tells about an expedition to Antarctis and the discovery of a very ancient city once inhabited by some beings that came to Earth from the stars. They are fully material as opposed to the beings that came to Earth in a later arrival. They are said to transcend the material world. In my opinion these other creatures, the second group, seem to correspond better with the Great Old Ones, mentioned in the article and described in the article about Cthulhu Mythos. --Kalasklas 10:22, 23 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Leng is mentioned in A Colder War. --Gwern (contribs) 03:16 18 August 2007 (GMT)

Merged two sections[edit]

I sought to correct the incongruity described in the first comment up on this page, then realised that the two main sections are largely redundant, so I've now merged them. In addition I've moved the reference by another author to a section with the Stephen King name-drop. Ordinarily I'd ask first, but seeing as the remark above pointing out a blatant mistake went unanswered for nearly four months, I'm guessing that this page is as abandonned as the Plateau of Leng itself...
