Colour Our of Space is an American horror short story, written in 1927, by esteemed turn-of-the-century horror author H.P. Lovecraft. Written in the first-person perspective of an unnamed surveyor from Boston, The Colour Out of Space tells the story of the narrator's attempts to uncover the secrets behind a shunned place referred to be the locals of Arkham as the "blasted heath". Unable to garner any information from the townspeople, the protagonist seeks out an old and allegedly crazy man by the name of Ammi Pierce who relates his personal experiences with a farmer who used to live on the cursed property, Nahum Gardner. Pierce claims that the troubles began when a meteorite crashed into Gardner's lands in June 1882. David had a copy of this text in his bookshelf. When the players visited the Abandoned Cabin, Niklos insisted that this and the other books on the shelf were clues to the ultimate truth.
