The Lovecraft series continues with another one of his secondary revisions. (Yes, I am slowly working on writing up some new material.)
Raw Feed (2005): “The Tree on the Hill”, Duane W. Rimel [and H. P. Lovecraft], 1934.
This is another Lovecraft revision (S. T. Joshi says he probably wrote the second half) that is too vague or inchoate to have much of an effect.
A blasted clearing (rather reminiscent of that in Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space” — though I suspect Rimel contributed that image) and its sole tree and photographs of them are the facilitators of an apocalypse narrowly avoided. What appears to be a tree with three shadows at story’s end seems to be a hand groping into this world from another dimension.
