The Lovecraft Memorial

A place created to honor one of the greatest horror writers ever to live. A still lawn, a quiet breeze, a gentle tree. The stone with its poetic plaque. And a profound sense of unease.

Is that the sound of children playing from far away? The voices seem so deeply unreal... and looming inescapably across the asphalt is Carrie Tower, gabled in light, roaring to the heavens like a screaming fist against the sky, glittering and unfathomed...

Birdsong, the rapture dispelled as quickly as it came.
