“The Moon-Bog”

 

Picking up the Lovecraft series again with one of his more obscure stories.

Raw Feed (2005): “The Moon-Bog”, H. P. Lovecraft, 1921.Dagon and Other Macabre Tales

Another early Lovecraft story in which the narrator relates the downfall of his friend. Here the hero’s mistake is insisting on draining the bog, site of an ancient cult, in front of his castle in Ireland. There is none of the hostility and bitterness between the men that shows up in Lovecraft’s “From Beyond“.
