HP Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness was written in 1931 as a novella, written from the point of view of a geologist, William Dyer, writing about a terrible event that happened on a scientific mission to the Antarctic some years previously. His aim is to prevent a separate mission from going back to the area where he and a team of about 20 researchers initially went to drill for rock samples. Exploring unknown territory using light aircraft, some members of the team come across a mountain range higher than the Himalayas, the ‘mountains of madness’ as the narrator comes to call them. Their presence is an incredible scientific discovery, and further radio reports describe odd rock formations, which are baffling the team.
