Howard Phillips Lovecraft is among the greatest American writers of fantasy and the supernatural. Born in 1890, a native of Providence, Rhode Island, his health was uncertain from childhood and he led a sheltered early life. His semi-invalidism enabled him to read omnivorously, and as a shy imaginative child he began to invent what would in his adult life become a whole macabre fantastic world of his own, peopled by creatures out of his own weird imagination.

Lovecraft short story, written in 1922, by a narrator who describes himself as "a connoisseur in horrors", it lurks in a haunted house in upstate New York. Listen to this tale on a dark and stormy night... if you dare.
