100 Years Since Lovecraft's 'The Beast in the Cave' was Published?

The Beast by Vindrea
""The Beast in the Cave" is a short story by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft.
The first draft was written in the Spring of 1904, with the final draft finished in April 1905, when Lovecraft was fourteen.
It was first published in the June 1918 issue of the amateur press journal The Vagrant."
I couldn't help thinking today as I read Lovecraft's cave story, written when he was about 14 years old, how eerie it was to be seeing in the news a whole bunch of boys roughly the same age trapped in a real life cave drama playing out before the world's news media.
Let's hope that the Thai cave news story has a better ending than most of Lovecraft's story endings.
