Review: The Haunter of the Dark

The Haunter of the Dark
The Haunter of the Dark by H.P. Lovecraft

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Part of the Complete Works of H.P. Lovecraft, which can be found formatted for Nook and Kindle on CthulhuChick.com.

Synopsis: The story takes place in Providence, Rhode Island and revolves around the Church of Starry Wisdom. The cult uses an ancient artifact known as the Shining Trapezohedron to summon a terrible being from the depths of time and space.

My Thoughts: This is the last story in the omnibus, so by extension it is the last story published by Lovecraft. I must say he was coming well into his own, so it's a real pity his work was cut short. This shows a maturity and self-confidence that is lacking in some of the earliest works in this book. Wonderful stuff. A voice that will be missed.
