Cthulhu Thursday: House of Yig and Other Stories
Into my inbox recently popped an email from a fellow Mythos blogger and author offering a free story for us Lovecraft fans, The House of Yig…
The nights grew colder and the moon’s face, which had been hidden from us, began to grow anew. Time passed, and over the days and nights of our capture, Tall Pine grew weak. He had got a fever some days after our arrival, brought on by too much night air I thought. I leaned for a moment on my shovel, pretending to study a stone that was in the way of my work, and he spoke these words to me, in a voice I did not think his at all:
It is true, what the slaves have said: we go to Yig. I see His eyes. I feel His breath. We will serve in His house underground all the days of the earth.
Its a good read – well worth it! If you like this there is a collection available as an eBook – see here for more information.
