Adapted and Performed by: Erik Bauersfeld

He grew up in an underground castle among the remains of his mother's half eaten bones. Later he finds a way to climb up to the surface of the world and face an image of himself... a monstrous horror that had come before its time. Lovecraft adds that the story has a “cynicism tempered with immeasurable pity for man’s eternal tragedy of aspirations beyond the possibility of fulfillment."
