Summary

"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown." (H.P. Lovecraft, "Supernatural Horror in Literature")

Wilbur Whately has got to be one of the most horrifying characters in literature. Why is he eight feet tall at age 15 and can grow a full beard? Is it because of his controversial parentage? Or is his arrival merely a precedent for the arrival of an ancient evil?

In The Dunwich Horror, Lovecraft lays further ground in the Cthulu mythos. Alongside The Dunwich Horror are the stories "Dagon", "The Call of Cthulhu", "The Lurking Fear", "Imprisoned with the Pharoahs", "The Music of Erich Zann", "Randolph Carter", "In the Walls of Eryx", and "The Transition of Juan Romero".

Something different, something familiar.

The Dunwich Horror is wonderful. These short stories suck you into another realm where green sludge covers the ruins and tentacled demons with one blue eye and one brown eye are possible. This is genius.

Weird Over-Pronounciation

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Has a fine voice, cadence and timing, etc. all good, but for some odd reason, he over-pronounces the letter T to the point that it annoys. Why??! Kinda ruined the audiobook for me...
