Glad to hear you fellas were both disturbed by, yet enjoyed, Screwfly Solution. The other fans who recommended it were right. Fits in well with this show.

You guys mention that the end of the story seems like a reunion of sorts. Juan Romero returning to his original form. I kind of saw it as Juan being driven toward the open abyss like a madness to be a sacrifice. The Hindu ring awakened because the abyss opened and the mystical or magical powers within seeped out.

I felt that The White Ship was a story about a watchman who fell asleep on the job, had a great dream, but like dreams, the world intrudes and becomes part of it just as you wake up... this being the white ship breaking on the rocks because he failed to keep the lighthouse lit.

Stalin killed mostly his own people. Hitler did target Jews (of many races) but also ethnic minorities and many more including Eastern European people... Jewishness is a religion and not a race...
