The Case of Charles Dexter Ward
Robert W. Chambers
Providence, Rhode Island, 1928. A dangerous inmate disappears from a private hospital for the insane, his method of escape baffling the authorities. Only the patient's final visitor, family physician Dr. Marinus Bicknell Willett - himself a piece of the puzzle - holds the key to unlocking The Case of Charles Dexter Ward . A macabre mixture of historical investigation, grave-robbing, and bone-chilling revelation, this newly reissued adaptation (in a smaller format, with a foreword by Jeff Lemire and a new cover) artfully lays bare one of H.P. Lovecraft's most horrifying creations. "This is really the best way to enjoy Lovecraft." Boing Boing
