t is a strange dark orb at ye very rim of our solar system -- unknown to earthly astronomers as yet. At ye proper time.. ye beings there will direct thought-currents toward us and cause it to be discovered.
There are mighty cities on Yuggoth -- great tiers of terraced towers built of black stone. Ye sun shines there no brighter than a star, but the beings need no light. They have other subtler senses, and put no windows in their great houses and temples. Light even hurts and hampers and confuses them, for it does not exist at all in ye black cosmos outside time and space where they came from originally. The black rivers of pitch that flow under those mysterious cyclopean bridges -- things built by some elder race extinct and forgotten before ye beings came to Yuggoth from ye ultimate voids --(can drive a mad to madness or ecstacy).
But that dark world of fungoid gardens and windowless cities isn't really terrible. It is only to us that it would seem so. This world seemed terrible to them when they first explored it in ye primal age -- long before the epoch of Cthulhu was over. They have been inside ye earth, too--and the great worlds of unknown life down there; blue-litten K'n-yan, red-litten Yoth, and black lightless N'kai, from whence frightful Tsathoggua came.
