Randolph Carter & Kin
While in the Dreamlands the other day, I took this snapshot of Randolph Carter and some of his family, who were meeting up in the Gardens of Yin. From left to right: Edmund Carter, John Carter, Randolph Carter, William Beckford Carter (the black sheep of the family), Catherine Lucille Carter, and Sadegh Hedayat Carter. Looking at them all together in identical nightclothes, their family resemblance is obvious despite the great gaps of space and time that separate them. But who would ever mix them up, considering their many accomplishments?
