Re: The Statement of Randolph Carter
I didn't think very much of "The Festival" the first time I read it, but than I didn't notice that there were wizards/witches in it, as well as the concept of reanimation. It probably is a good story because it has plenty of things happening if you know what to look for. Now just what was the purpose of the colored flame, or where was the mount going to take them? That is a mystery. Here in this Randolf Carter story, it is just too vague, whereas it has potential be be a better story. You could fill in anything in the huge gaps. I suppose that Harley Warren meant for what he saw to remain a secret. In fact it was his fault, at least he knew.
