Basil Elton is a lighthouse keeper who has followed in his father’s and grandfather s footsteps - all of them have taken care of this very lighthouse. Elton is still fascinated by the ocean: blue, green, grey, white, or black smooth, ruffled, or mountainous - the ocean is never silent. But Elton also has a special dream. He dreams about a magical white ship that would take him to places, far away from the lighthouse…H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was an American horror writer. His best known works include ‘The Call of Cthulhu’ and ’the Mountains of Madness’. Most of his work was originally published in pulp magazines, and Lovecraft rose into fame only after his death at the age of 46. He has had a great influence in both horror and science fiction genres.
