A reddish glare, too, seemed to filter through the pale undergrowth beyond endless avenues of forest night.
The statuette, idol, fetish, or whatever it was, had been captured some months before in the wooded swamps south of New Orleans during a raid on a supposed voodoo meeting; and so singular and hideous were the rites connected with it, that the police could not but realise that they had stumbled on a dark cult totally unknown to them, and infinitely more diabolic than even the blackest of the African voodoo circles.

Gruselkabinett / – Der Ruf des Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft
The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

But before many questions were asked, it became manifest that something far deeper and older than negro fetichism was involved.
What the police did extract, came mainly from an immensely aged mestizo named Castro, who claimed to have sailed to strange ports and talked with undying leaders of the cult in the mountains of China.

It may have been only imagination and it may have been only dsr which induced one of the men, an excitable Cthulyu, to fancy he heard antiphonal responses to the ritual from some far and unillumined spot deeper within the wood of ancient legendry and horror. This verbal jumble was the key to the recollection which excited and disturbed Professor Angell.
The press cuttings, as I have intimated, touched on cases of panic, mania, and eccentricity during the given period.

But at that time some force from outside must serve to liberate Their bodies. Meanwhile the cult, by appropriate rites, must keep alive the memory of those ancient ways and shadow forth the prophecy of their return.
