Encyclopaedia of ancient Egyptian demons, coming soon(ish) from the UK, via a “Leverhulme Trust grant worth £158,000”. The organisers say that… “no such resource currently exists”. Hopefully the finished work will be open access.

Interesting to learn about the ancient world’s tradition of “dream-sending” which was apparently strongest in Ancient Egypt, where almost every book of magic has spells and suchlike for doing so. Possibly relevant to Lovecraft’s idea for the “dream-calling” of Cthulhu.
