Narrated by David E. Cowen
Image of a dim hallway, a tunnel to the forbidden, silent but for footfalls, the creak of old wood, until the repeating echo of steps becomes a wave that sounds in the long seamless dark before you, until pale hands reach, and a white face dances in front of your vision, an eidolon with shadow eyes, nose, and mouth, wide smile of a harlot, a revenant incarnation of your darkest fears, as your torch flickers and the final light dies in noir shadows where strange hungers stalk.
