Dread Carcosa: The Lonesome Place by August Derleth
Over the years the fiction of August Derleth has come under a lot of scrutiny because, for the most part, of his attempts to humanize (in a way) Lovecraft’s pantheon of alien gods and demons. To a degree this is warranted, though hardly as severely as has become popular.

Chumley & Pepys On Books: Yes Cecil, A Long Story Short, Part Sixty-One, Part A
Standing at the dining room windows, the spent garden before her, she looked closely at the stark limbs of the leafless trees and shrubs and thought they resembled the branching architecture of elkhorn and staghorn corals, corals she remembered swimming over with a feeling of great excitement and pleasure, but as this memory washed over her, she couldn't recall the context. Scuba diving? Snorkeling? The Caribbean? She noticed the small stone bench in the far corner, and could see herself sitting on the cold damp slab in the early morning, black-capped Chickadees playing in the fir trees above her, the delicate pink dianthus plants near her feet, robust spreading sedums and purple salvias reaching up towards a diversity of grasses—greys, greens, reds, feathery and slender—swaying and twitching in the light breeze.
