Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Prologue

“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... someday the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age.” – H. P. Lovecraft, “The Call of Cthulhu”

2 Chapter One

“The woods enclose and then enclose again, like a system of Chinese boxes opening one into another; the intimate perspectives of the wood changed endlessly around the interloper, the imaginary traveller walking towards an invented distance that perpetually receded before me. It is easy to lose yourself in these woods.” –Angela Carter, “The Earl King”

3 Chapter Two

 “Let's face it: I'm scared, scared and frozen. First, I guess I'm afraid for myself... the old primitive urge for survival. I live every moment with terrible intensity. I want to become acutely aware of all I've taken for granted. When you feel that this may be good-bye, the last time, it hits you harder.” – Sylvia Plath, “The Unabridged Journals”

8 Chapter Seven

 “In my tortured ears there sounds unceasingly a nightmare whirring a flapping, and a faint distant baying as of some gigantic hound. It is not dream—it is not, I fear, even madness—for too much has already happened to give me these merciful doubts.”—H.P. Lovecraft, “The Hound”
