Overview

The Shadow of Innsmuth was a novella of five chapters, written by H.P. Lovecraft in late 1931, but not published until 1936. It is told in the first-person, narrated by Robert Olmstead (not mentioned in the story but the full name was found in Lovecraftís notes), who has traveled to Massachusetts from Ohio. He wants to see the sights of historical interest and do a little family history research, visiting long lost family members in the town of Arkham.

Olmstead discovers that he can only afford the fare to reach Arkham via a town with a questionable reputation ñ Innsmuth. The town has been cut off from the rest of humanity for generations and the residents there are rumored to have strange deformities. When Olmstead arrives he finds a down at the mouth community with shabby buildings and people there are not really people at all, but a strange cross between human and fish or frogs. They walk in a peculiar fashion and have a distinctive froggy look.

This book is annotated and includes a critical essay and biography about the life and times of H.P. Lovecraft is also included with this book.
