Robert Blake, a writer and painter interested in the paranormal and mystical, undertakes to study a powerful relic, the "Shining Trapezohedron," that is kept in the Church of Starry Wisdom. This terrifying object was created by the Old Ones and serves as a window to all of space and time. As Blake conducts his investigation into the relic, he discovers its horrible abilities and history, putting himself in mortal danger in the process.

"The Haunter of the Dark" is a part of "The Cthulhu Mythos," a universe created by H.P. Lovecraft and subsequent writers, including Robert Bloch, that centered around the horror of "The Great Old Ones." "The Haunter of the Dark" and the character of Robert Blake were created as a professional nod to Lovecraft's contemporary, Robert Bloch. The story is part of a trilogy written by both authors which also includes the stories "The Shambler from the Stars" and "The Shadow from the Steeple" by Bloch.
