Well, Lovecraft encouraged other writers to use material from his works to create a sense of a common background. This was to create sense of verisimilitude to his stories as if they were drawn on a real mythology instead of one he made up. This work so well that people think the Necronomicon is a real book and certain occultists insist that the Old Gods were real (which probably would have horrified the materialist Lovecraft.)ReplyDelete
The manga/anime Soul Eater had an appearance of the Book of Eibon and Eibon himself. It would have to be an AU since in it the personification of Death is a public figure among other weirdness. Also Arsene Lupin and Sherlock Holmes appear.
