The Dreams in the Witch House

By H.P. Lovecraft
Illustrated by Pete Von Sholly
Introduction by S.T. Joshi

Dustjacket Text

The Dreams In The Witch House has always been a favorite of mine. I love the witch using math to bridge the dimensions, her furry, fanged familiar, Brown Jenkin with his nuzzling ways, and the visions of hyperspace travel . . . including a stop somewhere in space and time where we finally get to see the Old Ones from the Mountains of Madness as living creatures.
     Is the story flawless? Well, I don’t know why Keziah balks at the sight of the crucifix, but Gilman does use its chain to strangle her! Perhaps she foresaw that; she is a witch after all!
     The depictions of hyperspace and the distortions of our characters when they travel through it tap into a stylistic place which I enjoy tremendously . . . though, alas, I seldom have an excuse to visit!
Pete Von Sholly
