Publisher's Summary

For many years, the protagonist and his uncle, Dr. Elihu Whipple, have nurtured a dark fascination with an ancient, abandoned house on Benefit Street in Providence, Rhode Island. Dr. Whipple has made extensive records tracking the mysterious yet apparently coincidental sickness, madness, and death of many who have lived in the house over its 150-year existence.

After the protagonist uncovers by chance the shocking history of the undisturbed graveyard below the house, he and his uncle dedicate themselves to determining the existence of whatever is responsible for the malignance, supernatural or otherwise. What happens next is best expressed in the author's own words: "There are horrors beyond horrors, and this was one of those nuclei of all dreamable hideousness which the cosmos saves to blast an accursed and unhappy few."

Please enjoy this rare novella-length tale of these two intrepid souls as they descend into the eldritch depths of H. P. Lovecraft.
