The Green Ghast

“After a moment something about the size of a small horse hopped out into the grey twilight, and Carter turned sick at the aspect of that scabrous and unwholesome beast, whose face is so curiously human despite the absence of a nose, a forehead, and other important particulars.”
—H. P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath”
