on June 22, 2012 :
An interesting story set in the Arkham Asylum where two people try to come to grips with the world around them. The writing of this story is strong enough to help draw you into the feeling of being in an asylum, especially one where those around you have touched Lovecraft's mythos. The characters are interesting, especially Pigeon.
But as the story goes on, the climax of the story enters this weird stop-start pacing issue that bogs down the flow of the story and kills most of the forward momentum. When the final moment happens in the story, it was hard to care what was happening simply because I wanted the story over and to escape the halting pacing.
The other thing that should be noted, is that this is the SECOND in a series of stories. If you read the description, the author really doesn't actively state that this is the second in a series, and since most Lovecraftian stories happen after something large has already happened, some people (like myself) didn't pick up that there is something that should be read before this story. It also explained why there was a bit of confusion at the start of the story in regards to certain events.
All in all, a good take on a mythos story, but the jerking nature of the pacing during the climax makes it hard to finish this story.
