Bluesman who makes a Robert Johnson-esque deal with a force of cosmic evil in Edward M. Erdelac's supernatural short story "Crawling Chaos Blues" (2010). The story, narrated by harmonica player Harpoon Elkins, is full of references to H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos (the deal is with Nyarlathotep, who is referred to as "the Crawling Chaos" in some of the stories; "King Yeller" is a nod to Robert W. Chambers' The King in Yellow, which Lovecraft drew upon for his Cthulhu stories.
