A quick recommendation – “Pickman’s Model” by H.P. Lovecraft
If you want a marvelously creepy quick read, I highly recommend you get your hands on some H.P. Lovecraft.
This genius of the darkness was also a master of the short story format. Recently, I discovered a marvelous website called Dagonbytes.com which hosts online versions of some classic horror literature (in addition to being just a mecca for horror fans in general) and their Lovecraft collection is simply grand.
Since today’s blog was decidedly non-horror, I decided to throw you a bone.
Bone. Horror. Get it?
Below is one of my favorite horror short stories – “Pickman’s Model” by H.P. Lovecraft.
It’s the story of Pickman, a painter, and Thurber, our narrator. It’s creepy and tingly and has a nice twist at the end. If you’re looking for a fast thrill, or want to better understand the reverence paid to Mr. Lovecraft, you can’t do much better than this.
