Whoa--it's a triply serendipitiful morning! Last thing I did last night was listen to episode 793 of the Pseudopod horrorshow podcast "And No Bird Sings," for which this'd be a PERFECT illustration.
Gotta say, though the author was reportedly Lovecraft-influenced, he took a turn for a happy ending which I found more disappointing than one of betrayal & sacrifice for survival... So I edited & recreated reality inside my head (something no one's ever done before, acourse)
