Ah, the sweet singing of whip-poor-wills. Surely one of the most innocent, purest birdsongs one can know, plaintive and perfect in the clear morning light. Unless, of course, you happen to live near the decayed New England village of Dunwich. Unless, of course, you have seen the mad fires blazing from the ancient stone circles atop Sentinal Mountain. Unless, of course, you remember the horrible events of seventy years ago and happen to be familiar with the name, "Whatley."

Meet the Author

H.P. Lovecraft (1890-1937) was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. His relatively small corpus of fiction—three short novels and about sixty short stories—has exercised a wide influence on subsequent works of literary horror, and he is regarded as the leading twentieth-century American author of supernatural fiction.

I read this story some years ago, while you might not be scared (considering new standards of what make people get scared) the story is actually great. I enjoyed the read and it allowed my imagination fly. Should you read it? Yes, but I would recommend you to buy an H.P. Lovecraft collection.
