The famous H.P. Lovecraft storyDagonis gracefully retold in anapestic tetrameter and illustrated in a darkly whimsical style by "genius poet-artist" R.J. Ivankovic.
A sailor escapes in a lifeboat after his ship is attacked by a German raider during World War I. He soon finds himself in more bizarre peril, stranded in a dark, stinking mire on the edge of a mammoth pit. Venturing into the pit, he discovers a monolith covered in weird hieroglyphics and something stranger still that crawls from the slime—a creature that may be the vanguard of a vast and monstrous invading army from the depths of the sea.
The story of a tortured mariner who records his horrific experience before taking his own life.
