One of HP Lovecrafts earliest works, "The Shunned House", first published in Weird Tales in the October of 1937, is a short novellette about a mysterious, and apparently cursed house. The Shunned House on Benefit Street has long captivated the attention of the narrator and his uncle Elihu Whipple, but they are unprepared for the full scale of the horror they are to experience when they attempt to stay the night in it's benighted basement to finally unearth it's mysterious secrets. Considered one of Lovecrafts best short stories, it is beleived to have been his first individually published book: with 250 copies made by Recluse Press in 1928.

Narrated by Michael Ward.
