When the main expedition loses contact with Lake's party, Dyer and his colleagues investigate. Fortunately, the core of his work has nothing to do with his social and racial resentments. Contemporary maps of the continent show a number of provocative blanks, and Lovecraft could exercise his imagination in filling them in But still I read more—in hidden, forgotten books and scrolls to which my new vision led me—and pushed through fresh gateways of space and being and life-patterns toward the core of the unknown cosmos.
