Excerpts from Herbert West—Reanimator by H.P. Lovecraft.


I

. FROM THE DARK

Memories and possibilities are ever more hideous than realities.


II. THE PLAGUE-DAEMON

The next night devils danced on the roofs of Arkham, and unnatural madness howled in the wind.


III. SIX SHOTS BY MIDNIGHT

the essence of Herbert West’s existence was a quest amid black and forbidden realms of the unknown, in which he hoped to uncover the secret of life and restore to perpetual animation the graveyard’s cold clay.


IV. THE SCREAM OF THE DEAD

West’s sole absorbing interest was a secret study of the phenomena of life and its cessation, leading toward the reanimation of the dead through injections of an excitant solution.


V. THE HORROR FROM THE SHADOWS

I wonder even now if it could have been other than a daemoniac dream of delirium.


VI. THE TOMB-LEGIONS

West, in reality, was more afraid than I; for his abominable pursuits entailed a life of furtiveness and dread of every shadow. Partly it was the police he feared; but sometimes his nervousness was deeper and more nebulous, touching on certain indescribable things into which he had injected a morbid life, and from which he had not seen that life depart.

    I read this story today and really enjoyed it. It was written nearly 100 years ago and the different parts were each released in a magazine across the span of a few months. I also watched the movie based on this story a few years ago and though it's considered a cult classic and is entertaining and ridiculous, I would not recommend watching it as it's very gruesome.

    @Kate I haven't. I have just started reading his work recently. To test his style you can search his stories online for free because there is no copyright on much of them. I'd suggest starting with something short to see if you like how he writes. The Statement or Randolph Carter is a good one I think.
