H.P. Lovecraft The Lurking Fear
Continuing his investigation, the narrator teams up with Arthur Munroe, another journalist. The two find as much information as they can on the mansion and environs, until they find themselves trapped by yet another storm. Bunkered in a small cabin, they witness a bright flash of lightning. Arthur looks out the window to survey the damage. The narrator, curious as to why Arthur is still staring out the window, turns him to find his face chewed off. As the narrator digs open the grave of Jan Martense, he describes the history of the Martense family.
Upon reaching the coffin, he continues to dig, and subsequently falls into a subterranean burrow.
He crawls along, until he sees two eyes reflecting his torch-light in the darkness. Yet another lightning-strike causes the tunnel to cave in above the beast and the narrator has to dig his way to the surface. He spots a red glare in the distance that he learns was a cabin that the hillside squatters had set alight with one of the beasts inside. The narrator continues to search for more clues, until it occurs to him that peculiar mounds of earth lead out in lines from the mansion.
He finds a burrow entrance in the basement as another storm approaches. Finding a hiding place, he watches as countless creatures crawl from the hole. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.

Notify me of new posts via email. Skip to content Having recently reread the title story, and in the interest of the season, I thought I would share some thoughts here.
Those of you who have not have some catching up to do, it would seem… The premise of the story is quite simple: the narrator, having heard rumours of a horror on Tempest Mountain, visits the Martense Manor at said location with the intention of uncovering what is occurring there.
