This is an attempt at a Bulgarian translation of a short story, or a novella -- definitions vary, by acclaimed science fiction writer John C. Wright, of "The Golden Age" fame. The novella itself is inspired by "The Night Lands," a relatively unknown classic horror novel, written shortly before WWI by William Hope Hodgson, who died on the battlefield at Ypres. Both the novel itself and the derivative novella employ a deliberately archaic and cumbersome language. H.P. Lovecraft himself described the original work as "one of the most potent pieces of macabre imagination ever written".
