The Broken HourseBook - 2014
In 1936, horror writer H. P. Lovecraft was broke, living alone in a creaky old house, and deathly illustrations At the edge of a nervous breakdown, he hired a personal assistant, a young writer named Arthur P. Crandle. As the novel opens, Crandle arrives at Lovecraft's home with no knowledge of the writer or his work, but is soon drawn into his distinctly unnerving world: the malevolent presence that hovers on the landing; the ever-shining light from Lovecraft's study, invisible from the street; visions in the night of a white-clad girl in the walled garden; and the appearance of a beautiful woman, who may not be exactly what she seems. As Crandle gets pulled deeper into the strange world of H. P. Lovecraft (known to Crandle only through letters, signed "Ech-Pi"), he begins to suspect a dark secret at its heart. A brilliantly-written, compelling, and deeply creepy novel, The Broken Hours is an irresistable literary ghost story.
