The Dunwich Horror

by H. P. Lovecraft

I read this because Dunwich and "The Whately Acadamy" and the Miskatonic Valley feature heavily in the stories at http://www.crystalhall.com about a bunch of mutant teenagers. The Whately acadamy is a boarding high school for the kids. The story "bible" mentions that it is based on the locations and some of the ideas of H.P.Lovecraft and so I was curios. I have to say, if they thought this was horror back in the 1930's some of Steven Kings or Dean Koontz stuff would give them serious heart attacks. I have read 2 now and they are just kind of funny from my point of view. Interesting though, to see how they thought back then.
