Tais Teng is absolutely one of the most original writers in the world. This story is at first glance a tale about the battle between men en elves. But being a Tais Teng story there is more behind it than you might think. Will mankind win? Or are we doomed forever. If you like this story I recommend that you buy "Lovecraft, My Love", the collection that's filled with stories like this one.
