“The Horror at Red Hook” (1927)

Creators

H. P. Lovecraft (writer).

Commentary

Like “The Street” (1920), this is one of those stories where Lovecraft didn’t bother to come up with a causal relationship, instead expecting the reader, unlike his wife at the time of writing, to buy into the racism.
