He has said that someday he hopes to do a „Weird Nature“ anthology as well. A team of four women cross the border into an uninhabited area known as Area X. The group consists of a biologist, an anthropologist, a psychologist, and a surveyor. None of the team is ever identified by name. The story is told through the biologist’s field journal. After the first night spent at the base camp, the 12th expedition come upon a set of spiral stairs into the ground.
The writing appears to consist of a plant material growing several inches from the exterior wall. While the biologist is examining the writing, she accidentally inhales spores from one of the script-defining growths. Where lies the strangling fruit that came from the hand of the sinner I shall bring forth the seeds of the dead to share with the worms that gather in the darkness and surround the world with the power of their lives while from the dim lit halls of other places forms that never were and never could be writhe for the impatience of the few who never saw what could have been. The group then make their way back to the „tower“ where the surveyor and narrator descend back down the stairs while the psychologist stands watch.
Eventually, the surveyor and biologist come upon the body of the anthropologist. The biologist and surveyor decide to return to the base camp after a fruitless search for the psychologist. That night the biologist sees a light from the area of a distant lighthouse. The next day she leaves for the lighthouse while the surveyor stays behind. At the lighthouse, she finds a pile of journals from past expeditions, indicating that there have been many more expeditions than they had been told.
