The strange creatures who are also called the Other Ones or, by the Indians, the Winged Ones from the Great Bear in the sky. They are said to have come here to mine a stone they could find nowhere else in the universe. They are said to have offered certain humans the chance to travel with them to distant worlds but the form of travel is terrifying in its surgical disintegration of the human body. They are the Fungi from Yuggoth.
