  • Eldritch Abomination: These are usually the villains.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Every character is like this. Every single one. Nobody is happy. Ever.
  • Gorn: Every death is Cruel and Unusual, and there’s a whole lot of death.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Nobody gets a happy ending, and their efforts are symbolic at the very best.
  • Surreal Horror: Most stories read like a fever dream thanks to their bizarre and hallucinatory circumstances.
