The H.P. Lovecraft Institute
By David Bischoff
The old Martin house has sat empty for decades, a Gothic mansion shrouded in ghost stories and local legend in the small town of Morristown, Rhode Island. Now a mysterious member of the family has returned from England and begun to clean up the old place. Tony Dickens, the son of the local pastor and in need of a job, ignores the stories and answers Professor Abraham Martin’s ad for a helper. Tony cleans the house, staying away from the macabre collection of wax figures—all murderers and despots from throughout history—in the great room and from the multi-level cellar where the professor does his “work”. With the acquisition of souls from those slain by the wax figures in place, a portal from another world will bring about the end of humanity.
