The following listing gives the stories published from the year of Ramsey Campbell's first collection to the tenth year afterword that are considered integral to the Cthulhu Mythos. Some of these were not considered as Mythos stories when first published, but have subsequently been subsumed into the Mythos by more current authors. This chronology only gives the place of first publication and the byline as it appeared therein.

If there is a story that you believe should be included in this chronology, we would be more than willing to listen to your reasoning of why it should be so. You can either email us at the address at the bottom of the page or enter the information in our guestbook, accessed from our main page.

NOTE: If for a particular publication the year and/or the date are blank, they are they same as above.
