Albert Wilmarth, a professor of folklore at Miskatonic University, receives a curious piece of mail. It contains a recording of a man claiming that strange creatures live in the remote regions of the mountains of Vermont – just as described in old folklore. It’s author presents compelling evidence and Professor Wilmarth eventually goes to Vermont to investigate for himself. What he discovers there is far, far worse than anything he could have imagined. Can the professor escape with his life and sanity, or will he become a part of a horror descended from interstellar space?
