PART FOUR: “But that old skin-bound book they found had a bunch’a gods they ain’t never heard of, said Joe, like Gollmorgoth the Cosmic Eye an’ another feller called HE WHO MAKES CONGRESS WITH ATROCITY.”
PART SIX: “They was big slithery octopus arms everywhere, an’ big hairy spider legs an’ crab claws, an’ slime drippin’ all over everything, an’ a big face that looked like a man an a bug at the same time.”
