ASENATH WAITE (1905-1932). Daughter of Ephraim Waite and an unknown mother. Asenath Waite grew up in the Innsmouth home of her father. Following his madness and death, she became a ward of the principal of Kingsport's Hall School and later attended Miskatonic University. It was at Miskatonic that Asenath met Edward Derby, poet and author of Azathoth and Other Horrors. The two became attracted to one another and married shortly thereafter. During their marriage, Asenath became Derby's tutor in the magical arts. Although on the surface their union was happy, those close to Derby noticed a shocking change in his personality during this period. Around three years after the marriage, Asenath disappeared; Derby insisted that his wife had gone on an extended vacation, and no one thought anything amiss. Later, after her husband had been confined to an asylum, her body turned up just outside the house of Daniel Upton, Derby's close friend, having been left there by persons unknown. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, monsters and creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over still murmuring their arcane incantations. Plus the odd tome, sigil, place of interest and manifestations of magical mumblings amongst the cursed. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
