Lovecraftian Thing a Day No.294: The Events at Poroth Farm
Concluding a veritable Kleinian trilogy of terror, today's offering is The Events at Poroth Farm - one of T.E.D Klein's earliest works, and the short story that was to form the basis for his monumental The Ceremonies. I picked my chapbook copy (illustrated by Jason Eckhardt) from a specialist bookshop (The House on the Borderland in Peterborough, UK) in the early 1990s (although the story was first published in 1972). Whilst it is a bit raw around the edges, this is still great stuff - fortunately it is also available in Kindle/ebook format in the Cthulhu Mythos Megapack via Amazon.
