Curious devices, forbidden artifacts, mysterious creatures, and intriguing documents.
Oh very nice. Much better than the crappy Masters of Horror tv version.
Now that is a gem! Love it!
That is a pretty good depiction of Brown Jenkin, given the description given by HPL. Brown Jenkin is also of my favorite mythos “characters” as it harks back to medieval representations of mis-natural creatures suggestive of the paintings of Hieronymus Boch. That fact that it is life-size is also a good feature. BTW, there is a YouTube video entitled “Making Brown Jenkin”, that might be of interest.Dreams in the Witch House is one of my favorite stories from the mythos, because of it’s minimalism and suggestiveness. I can’t quite agree with learned specialists who consider it a minor effort. The tale is told in period mainstream settings, rather than far-off ruins in obscure lands making you believe it might be possible and is right here in modern America.
I always assumed HP based the Brown Jenkin story on that of Gef the Talking Mongoose. Fortean Times had a cover story on Gef late last year.
A great piece! I'll be getting one soon - I hope
