a man to fish and you bring him into the glorious human army doing
battle with that ancient watery enemy, the Bathyphasm, foul spirit who
is made manifest in all aquatic

burrowing in the seabed, weak-minded or cunning. That his sanity may
be consumed by the Deep Song is no cause for trepidation – for we may
all suffer that fate.
