> "The Friendship Light" is, I believe, a Lovecraft mythos story.
I would never have picked up on that. But then I've read very little
by Lovecraft. What are the clues?
> It's in "Innocents Abroad."
Couldn't let that pass without picking a nit: Wolfe's collection is
"Innocents *Aboard*" Wolfe's title is a pun on Mark Twain's
"Innocents *Abroad*," which is subtitled "The New Pilgrim's Progress,"
and recounts Twain's visit to the Holy Land.
The last story in Wolfe's collection is "The Lost Pilgrim."
