The Rats In The Walls: Short Story
|Authors:||Lovecraft, H. P.|
When a man purchases an estate that was once occupied by his ancestors, he becomes obsessed with restoring it to its former grandeur. But as he learns more about his ancestral estate, Exham Priory, he uncovers sinister details about his ancient relatives, and the dark secrets hidden in the depths of the house begin to overwhelm him.
H.P. Lovecraft’s writing served as the basis for what is now called “The Cthulhu Mythos,” a universe created by Lovecraft and subsequent writers—most famously Lovecraft’s publisher August Derleth—that centered around the horror of “The Great Old Ones.” The Cthulhu Mythos has become influential in popular culture and has inspired numerous books, comics, films, and games.
