There is a LOT in this show that reminds me of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King.  Yellow King/Crimison King.  Ka is a wheel/living your life over and over again to infinity.  The swirly symbol looks a heck of a lot like the Crimson King's symbol.  And just the feel of the mystery, the dreams, the extremely well realized characters.  All very Stephen King-like.  I wonder if it's a coincidence that the director is in talks to make the IT movie.

The King in Yellow is actually a collection of short stories from Robert W. Chambers, and I think King might have been influenced by Chambers. He wasn't the only one, Chambers' short stories also influenced Lovecraft, among others.

Besides Chambers, "True Detective" (especially Rust Cohle's world view) is also heavily influenced by the thoughts of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The sentence on the image is actually a paraphrase of one of Nietzsche's most famous quotes: "If you stare long enough into the abyss, the abyss also stares into you." In the last episode, Rust Cohle also summed up Nietzsche's doctrine of Eternal Return.

Ooh, I felt Lovecraftian tone as well.  I guess it goes to show you how much people influence each other.  Great show :)

Oh by the way, Lovecraft read Nietzsche as well. He even quoted him once in an article on why cats are superior to dogs.
