Sir Wade Jermyn was once an early explorer of the Congo, writing numerous books on a mysterious white civilisation that lived there. Ridiculed for his ideas, he was eventually deemed insane and incarcerated in an asylum, but not before fathering three children by his mysterious and reclusive wife he claimed was Portuguese. Plagued by disabilities and odd characteristics, their bloodline has a dark secret with its origins in the deepest depths of the Congolese jungle. “Facts Concerning the Late Arthur Jermyn and His Family" is a 1920 short story by American author H. P. Lovecraft. A chilling tale of dangerous knowledge and intolerable truth, this book is highly recommended for fans of horror and supernatural fiction. Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890–1937) was an American writer of supernatural horror fiction. Though his works remained largely unknown and did not furnish him with a decent living, Lovecraft is today considered to be among the most significant writers of supernatural horror fiction of the twentieth century. Other notable works by this author include: “At the Mountains of Madness”, “The Rats in the Walls”, and “The Shadow Over Innsmouth”. Read & Co. is publishing this classic short story now as part of our “Fantasy and Horror Classics” imprint in a new edition with a dedication by George Henry Weiss.
