After the death of his great-uncle, Francis Wayland Thurston delves into the late Profesor Angell's effects... "I was sorting through all his research one day, when I found a monstrosity made out of clay." Spurred on by his curiosity, Francis learns of many terrible things. The artist who came to his uncle for help. A raid in the Louisiana swamps, led by Inspector Legrasse. The sailor Gustaf Johansen. And, perhaps most importantly, the horrible fate of the Emma. "The most merciful thing in the world, I believe, is humanity's failure to fully conceive of the cosmical horrors we've yet to reveal, and which up until now I have tried to conceal."
