Daniel Upton, the story’s narrator, explains that he has killed his best friend, Edward Derby, and that he hopes his account will prove that he is not a murderer. He begins by describing Derby’s life and career. Derby had been interested in the occult even as a very young boy, which led to him befriending Upton. The two would discuss dark mythology in their spare time.
Maybe H.P Lovecraft isn’t for me because I lost the count of how many of his short stories I gave one star to.
The think which made me truly hate this short story was that it was sexist as fuck. I can’t believe how many people like this book because I hate it. And I don’t know why more people who have read this short story doesn’t comment on this.
The plot here was super bad, it was so bad that I don’t really remember what it was about because my brain deletes immediately super bad things from its memory which in the end is hoof because I don’t have to remember them.
The writing style here was also super bad it was so far from H.P Lovecraft as it could get.
I give this short story 1 / 5
