The C Programming Language: 4.10

4.10 Recursion
Similar to 'Pride and Prejudice and Vampires', here is an adaptation of a famous book in the computer science canon, rewritten in the style of H.P. Lovecraft, specifically 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth' (which I'm coincidentally also reading on my iPhone).
I never heard of C Recursion till the day before I saw it for the first and– so far– last time. They told me the steam train was the thing to take to Arkham; and it was only at the station ticket-office, when I demurred at the high fare, that I learned about C Recursion. The shrewd-faced agent, whose speech shewed him to be no local man, made a suggestion that none of my other informants had offered. "You could take that old bus, I suppose," he said with a certain hesitation. "It runs through C Recursion, so the people don't like it. I never seen more'n two or three people on it– nobody but them C folks."
