The Outsider By H. P. Lovecraft. That night the Baron dreamt of many a woe; And all his warrior-guests, with shade and form Of witch, and demon, and large coffin-worm, Were long be-nightmared. Beings must have cared for my needs, yet I cannot recall any person except myself; or anything alive but the noiseless rats and bats and spiders. I think that whoever nursed me must have been shockingly aged, since my first conception of a living person was that of something mockingly like myself, yet distorted, shrivelled, and decaying like the castle. To me there was nothing grotesque in the bones and skeletons that strowed some of the stone crypts deep down among the foundations
A shame and pity that Mr. Bauersfeld's rendition of Lovecraft's work can only be found now on recordings of THE BLACK MASS radio series.
The Rats in the Walls" is a short story by American author H. Written in August–September 1923, it was first published in Weird Tales, March 1924. Set in 1923, "The Rats in the Walls" is narrated by the scion of the de la Poer family, who has moved from Massachusetts to his ancestral estate in England, the ruined Exham Priory. To the dismay of nearby residents, he restores the Priory, plainly revealing his ignorance of the horrific history of the place. In 1923, an American named Delapore, the last descendant of the De la Poer family, moves to his ancestral estate in England following the death of his only son during World War I. To the dismay of nearby residents, he restores the estate, called Exham Priory.

For although nepenthe has calmed me, I know always that I am an outsider; a stranger in this century and among those who are still men. This I have known ever since I stretched out my fingers to the abomination within that great gilded frame; stretched out my fingers and touched a cold and unyielding surface of polished glass.

It was the eldritch scurrying of those fiend-born rats, always questing for new horrors, and determined to lead me on even unto those grinning caverns of earth’s centre where Nyarlathotep, the mad faceless god, howls blindly in the darkness to the piping of two amorphous idiot flute-players.

P. Lovecraft, "The Rats in the Walls" (Weird Tales Mar 1924). Since apparently this has become a meme, it is worth taking a moment to discuss a difficult subject: the name of Lovecraft's cat. When Lovecraft was a boy, the family adopted a black kitten which was named Nigger-Man. Lovecraft was racist. That should be understood and accepted by everyone. The name of his cat, when readers run across it in his biography or in "The Rats in the Walls," often strikes us as cartoonishly racist - but it should be understood in context. The name hits us today because we are more aware and less accepting of such casual use of racial slurs than they were in Lovecraft's lifetime; the same way people get upset when they read the N-word in a Mark Twain novel.
