Fan Fiction Writing Prompt

Lovecraft used the power of the unknown to inspire and horrify his readers. A lot of our contemporary cultural understanding of what goes into the horror genre comes from his stories. He had a profound influence on subsequent horror and science fiction writers. In his essay, "Supernatural Horror in Literature," Lovecraft writes: “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.”

"The Cask of Amontillado"
