Opening: You ask me to explain why I am afraid of a draught of cool air; why I shiver more than others upon entering a cold room, and seem nauseated and repelled when the chill of evening creeps through the heat of a mild autumn day. There are those who say I respond to cold as others do to a bad odour, and I am the last to deny the impression. What I will do is to relate the most horrible circumstance I ever encountered, and leave it to you to judge whether or not this forms a suitable explanation of my peculiarity.

One thought on “Cool Air: Short Story by H.P. Lovecraft

  1. This is one of my favorites by Lovecraft. I saw a tv production years ago and it was quite well done. They changed the narrator to a woman, but kept the basic story the same.
