Short story by Neal Wilgus published in Dark Tower IV. The narrator has been hired in the ancient city of Bogzritch to deliver "a trunk with a strange lock and disturbing symbols on all sides" to the Tower, following a map that shows the world as it was millennia before. As he travels thence, the narrator is afflicted with a nightmare of what might happen when they unlock the trunk and a similar journey apparently taking place on a red planet. It is revealed that the Tower was once a shining castle where King Krakosa ruled.
