Part of the ruins of the medieval Crowland Abbey, Lincolnshire. To the right, out of shot, is the part of the abbey which continues in use today as the parish church. A Dark Age hermitage was originally on the site, which, before the land was drained, was an island in low-lying reed beds. The island was supposed to have been possessed by devils and may have been a Bronze Age burial site. A Norman abbey was subsequently built here, with later medieval extensions, after it became a focus for pilgrimage.

I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.
—Edgar Allan Poe
I read, and in reading, lifted the Curtains of the Impossible that blind the mind, and looked out into the unknown.
—William Hope Hodgson
