Four sonnets written by Lin Carter and taken from his cycle Dreams From R'lyeh. First published in Amra in March 1965, it was included in Tatters of the King in The Hastur Cycle. In his introduction to the latter, Robert M. Price says, "Here Lin has assembled various of Derleth's further modifications of the Hastur character (his being served by the Byakhee, for example) which Derleth collects in no one place". In these poems, Hastur is described as 'Lord of Carcosa' and Carcosa is called a 'Nameless City' and described as possessing black domes and monolithic towers.
