Comment: Very strong story about loosing and founding own identiety. Similar story with “Dagon”, but totally different approach to the theme. One tree monster’s got clear mammals which is a reference that protagonist is lost because (or with) women. One can see a strong female monster his mother as well. Based on a poem, “Recognition”, by H.P. Lovecraft.
