Chapter 01 - A Publisher’s Prologue:
While dining recently in a most fashionable establishment, the publisher overheard a man shout, “There’s a shoggoth loose out there! If that’s not the start of the damned end of the world, I’d like to know what the hell is!”
That was followed by a burst of laughter from the people still seated at the man’s table, for he had risen, and now paced with a military briskness toward the restaurant’s fashionable exit without another word or glance.
