Mountains of Madness – HP Zinker

Sailor Larsen was the first to spy the jagged line of witchlike cones and pinnacles ahead, and his shouts sent everyone to the windows of the great cabined plane. Despite our speed zhey were very slow gaining prominence, hence we knew that they must be infinitely far off, and visible only because of their abnormal height. It was as if these stark, nightmare spires marked the pylons of a frightful gateway into forbidden spheres of dream, and complex gulfs of remote time, space and ultradimensionality. I could not help feeling that they were evil things – mountains of madness whose farther slopes looked out over some accursed ultimate abyss.
