The Wind Walker of the Icy Wastes
"The stars had been blotted out . . . the great cloud which had obscured the sky looked curiously like the outline of a great man. And . . . where the top of the 'cloud' must have been, where the head of the thing should have been, there were two gleaming stars, visible despite the shadow, two gleaming stars, burning bright — like eyes!"
—August Derleth, "The Thing That Walked on the Wind"
