"The Horror at Red Hook" is a 1925 short story by American writer H. P. Lovecraft. Detective Malone recounts his involvement with the case of Robert Suydam, a shabby recluse who seems to have miraculously turned his life around at the same time as a spate of local kidnappings. While investigating the case, Malone comes across no evidence as to his involvement save for a number of strange inscriptions. Written between Lovecraft's early work and his seminal Cthulhu Mythos cycle, "Red Hook” avoids his characteristic cosmic horror motif abundant in his later work in an attempt to widen his audience and markets. A gripping tale of the occult not to be missed by fans and collectors of Lovecraft's work.

Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890–1937) was an American writer of supernatural horror fiction. Though his works remained largely unknown and did not furnish him with a decent living, Lovecraft is today considered to be among the most significant writers of supernatural horror fiction of the twentieth century. Other notable works by this author include: “At The Mountains of Madness”, “The Rats in the Walls”, and “The Shadow Over Innsmouth”. Read & Co. is publishing this classic short story now as part of our “Fantasy and Horror Classics” imprint in a new edition with a dedication by George Henry Weiss.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."
