basically an old world brought back (with a new spelling) by one writer.

Alternative forms
eldrich, elrich, elritch

Etymology
From the earlier form elritch, of uncertain origin.
The second element, -ritch, is generally taken to be Old English rīċe (“realm, kingdom”) (see riche).

Some think the first element, el-, derives from an Old English root meaning "foreign, strange, other" (related to Old English ellende and modern English else); others think it derives from elf.[1][2] Reintroduced into popular literature by the writings of H. P. Lovecraft.
