Going to the well, literally?

My monograph was inspired by a mix of Lovecraft’s story The Colour Out of Space and taking a course on 20th century Russian history.  One day my brain made a connection between the Colour’s unnatural effect of corrupt growth then decay on its environment and, well, Stalinism.  Everything else stemmed from that concept and it is the anchor for the piece.

So, now that I am working to revise the monograph, I figure I should carefully reread, again, The Colour Out of Space… I’ll post more on that when I finish.

Any suggestions for other fiction that used the Colour well?
