There came a period when people were curious enough to steal up and count the herd that grazed precariously on the steep hillside above the old farmhouse, and they could never find more than ten or twelve anemic, bloodless-looking specimens. Evidently some blight or distemper, perhaps sprung from the unwholesome pasturage or the diseased fungi and timbers of the filthy barn, caused a heavy mortality amongst the Whateley animals.

I'm going to have to think up a name for a shelf on GoodReads for these types of books. They're not quite fantasy or sci-fi, not quite gothic and not quite wholly esoteric. Maybe just "Lovecraftian" will have to do...

Much like his other works, this was sublimely written. The story seemed much more f

After you're finished with The Call of Cthulhu and you feel as if you still have your senses about you (You think you do, but you don't. Good try though!), give The Dunwich Horror and Other Stories a go. Herein you'll find more possessed people and plenty others driven insane, as per usual.

Wilbur Whateley is the offspring of an extreme interracial relationship. His mother is a FUGLY, deformed, inbred albino. She’s the more attractive set of chromosomes because "papa" is reeeeeeeeeeally FUBAR and quite a bit “elder.” This unnatural genetic bouillabaisse helps Wilbur sprout into an impr

Jerry, George, Elaine and Cthulhu are sitting in Jerry’s New York apartment discussing H.P. Lovecraft’s 1928 novella The Dunwich Horror.
