“Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family”

Yes, it’s the same old story.  No new reviews so the Lovecraft series continues.

Raw Feed (2005): “Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family”, H. P. Lovecraft, 1920.Dagon and Other Macabre Tales

Lovecraft, in this 1920 story, sort of enters Edgar Rice Burroughs territory in that the story centers around a horrid tribe of white gorillas in Africa and how their blood, in typical Lovecraftian fashion, came to be mingled with the Jermyn family. In its revelations of horrid family secrets, it is something of a dress rehearsal for Lovecraft’s later The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.
