Publisher's Summary

Howard Phillips Lovecraft has been hailed by literary critics as the inventor of modern horror and a cultivating force behind such modern writers as Robert Bloch (Psycho), Wes Craven (The Craft, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream), and Stephen King (Pet Semetary, Carrie, Children of the Corn), just to name a few.The Rats in the Walls
After its complete restoration, the narrator of this tale moves into his ancestral family home. Soon afterward, however, he begins to hear noises in the walls. Suspecting rats, he sets out traps but finds these vermin are not the kind so easily dispatched. One of the all-time creepiest of Lovecraft's tales.The Shunned House
In the city of Providence stands an antique home of which everyone whispers. Never called "haunted" exactly, it is known as a place "unlucky", one in which people have supposedly died in alarmingly great numbers. This is what Lovecraft's narrator tells us, just before he and his uncle begin a series of investigations into the old place, a place with a terrible odor, one that is stronger in the basement than any place else.The Music Of Eric Zann
In the city of Lights, an impoverished student hears incredible music coming from peaked garret overhead. He knows little of the violin, but is certain from the fantastic pieces he hears night after night that he is in the presence of a highly original genius. But, it isn't long before he finds himself wondering, why does Zann only play at night? And why every night?Brought to life again by the incomparable Wayne June come horrors from the mind of the Master himself, in the way that only he can.

I expected more.

I have heard so much about the surreal horror of HP Lovecraft, and I wasn't entirely disappointed by this book, but neither was I blown away. There are good parts that will truly freak you out, but they are padded out too much to sustain the sense of dread.
