The Rats in the Walls is one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most celebrated tales; a haunting work of artistry from the unrivaled master of twentieth-century horror, featuring Lovecraft's trademark fantastical creatures and supernatural thrills, as well as the horrific and cautionary science-fiction themes that have influenced most of today's writers and filmmakers, including Stephen King, Guillermo del Toro and Neil Gaiman.
“I think it is beyond doubt that H. P. Lovecraft has yet to be surpassed as the twentieth century's greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.”
H.P. LOVECRAFT (1890–1937) was one of the greatest of American authors, achieving posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most important 20th-century authors in his genre.
