Measureless to Man

by Ivan R. profile


About the Story

You're on your way home from Cairo, with nothing but a rumpled suit and an apple for lunch. But the plane passes through dark air, over a fathomless sea. Past the heavens, under the deep, there are secrets hidden in the crevices of the world. Something is in you, longing to seek them out. And why not?

Either way, you're doomed.

IFComp 2017 Review: Measureless to Man by Ivan R.
A person of middle-eastern descent as the protagonist in a Lovecraftian horror story? That is already an innovative concept in a sub-genre where dark-skinned foreigners are generally treated as "other": either degenerate savages performing animalistic rituals to the Old Dark Ones, or cunning schemers looking to spread their evil into the white man's lands through deception and lies.
