It is said in Ulthar that no man may kill a cat. But before the burgesses forbade the killing of cats, there dwelt an old cotter and his wife who delighted to trap and slay them. Shortly after a caravan of strange wanders arrives to town, the kitten of an orphan boy goes missing. The boy, distraught, learns of the couple and invokes a strange prayer. The dark travelers leave that night and a curious event takes place that changes the town forever.
The Cats of Ulthar was written in 1920 by American Fantasy author H.P. Lovecraft. Celebrated artist Abigail Larson brings it back to life with her dark, gothic style.
