Possibly because he had a co-writer, this story is much less ponderous than most of Lovecraft's writing. The descriptions are good, and the tension grows throughout the story.
An anthropologist (or something) goes to Oklahoma to investigate the legends of the snake-god, Yig. His travels lead him to an insane asylum and a story by one of the institution's doctors.
Recommended.
