Lovecraft Illustrated Volume 3 - The Dunwich Horror

Ilustración para "The Dunwich Horror", por Pete Von Sholly.

The Dunwich Horror is the story that hooked me on Lovecraft. The mystery of the Whateleys and their ways, the character of Wilbur and the stunning revelation of his true self, the verisimilitude of the setting and all the trappings work so well. It was in this tale that I learned about Miskatonic University, the standing stones crowning many lonely New England hilltops, the eerie truth about whippoorwills, and (of) course the Necronomicon of the Mad Arab, Abdul Alhazred.

We even get a nice juicy quote from that forbidden tome that tells us much about our place and the place of our own planet in the terrifying cosmic scheme of things. The ending works like a knockout punch and the lore and legend of Dunwich, both the town and its strange geography replete with rumbling hills build to it like a masterfully orchestrated score worthy of Erich Zann.

—Pete Von Sholly
