“The Shunned House” by H.P. Lovecraft

“The Shunned House” by H.P. Lovecraft

This is a creepy story. It’s a short one, only 33 pages, about a house that has been shunned by the community due to the strange things that took place in it during its first 100 years. The house dates back to the 1700’s. No children were ever born alive in the house and all of its inhabitants fell victim to some strange, wasting type of illness while living in the house. There are many tales and speculations about the cause of these events. The narrator had played in the house as a boy while it was unoccupied and as an adult has a renewed interest in the history of the place. He and his uncle set out to solve the mystery of the Shunned House.

I found the story fascinating, partly because I have an interest in odd bits of history, and also because it is so well written. By today’s standards it is not particularly graphic but still gave me the creepy-crawlies. So, if you’re looking for something a little different to read, you should check out this story.
