Summary

In a rundown farmhouse near isolated, rural Dunwich, a bizarre family conjures and nurtures an evil entity from another realm, with the purpose of destroying the world and delivering it to ancient gods to rule, and only an aged university librarian can stop them.

"The Dunwich Horror" was first published in 1929 in "Weird Tales."

No need to pay for it.

Get it from Librivox for free. But it's cheap here anyway so, up to you.

A bargain

A great introduction to the world of Lovecraft at a bargain price.Well narrated.The story has that mysterious and sinister atmosphere about it.

Pretty Ok

Lovecraft is not known for his dialogue, and the Dunwich Horror is unfortunately full of it. It is an interesting enough story to pull you along pretty quickly though, and I was genuinely curious to see how it resolved. Not as good as some of his other novellas (I'm still waiting to find a work of his I like as much as The Mountains of Madness).
