Trains embody the promise and peril of technological advance. They unlock opportunities for wealth and travel, but also create incredible chaos - uprooting populations and blighting landscapes. Work on or around the rails leads to unwelcome discoveries and, in light of the Mythos, dire implications in the spread of the rail system as a whole. A certain path to uncovering unwelcome truths about the universe is to venture beyond our own placid island of ignorance and encounter foreign cultures. The Orient Express serves as the perfect vehicle for such excursions, designed as a bridge between West and East. Movement into mystery forms the central action for the 16 Lovecraftian Tales in this volume - but madness and murder will be the least of your problems on this trip aboard the Orient Express!
