Show Notes

In which Tod Beardsley reads The Shunned House, by HP Lovecraft, first published in the October, 1937 issue of Weird Tales. Since this is a horror podcast, it may not be for everyone. This reading contains detailed descriptions of 17th, 18th, and 19th Century architecture, a meandering genealogy, several child maladies and deaths, including stillbirth, an infectious madness, eerie fungi and vapors, a vampiric presence, and a rental property which certainly would not meet modern residential building codes. If any of these elements are likely to disturb you unduly, you are urged to skip this episode.
