Good evening, everyone,
I'm a new poster here and have only been reading Lovecraft for a few months now so forgive me if this sort of thread is already in existence but I wanted to ask: are there any stories where someone explores R'lyeh?
I've always been attracted to the idea of there being cities that the average human can't regularly (or easily) access. I know Lovecraft himself didn't write many stories where the city is featured but how about any others? I remember there being an Amazon listing for a book called Taken in R'lyeh but, to my knowledge, that's more of just a short erotica. I'm looking for a story (or collection of them) that might answer the following questions:
1. How does one enter R'lyeh?
2. Is there a way out of R'lyeh?
3. It's called a "nightmare-corpse city" but does that mean there is no actual life or day-to-day bustle there?
4. Is it actually on Earth or in some other plane of existence?
