    This is an extremely creepy and uncanny story What is the mysterious doctor practising upstairs and why does he need such a number of ammoniac to cool down the temperature in his room Accompany a lodger who pieces together sinister details on that strange doctor The conclusion seems utterly absurd Well, here you really get goosebumps I hope you don t see any stains of water on your ceiling at home or in your flat Reasons for them could be different to what you thought Intriguing, bizarr This is an extremely creepy and uncanny story What is the mysterious doctor practising upstairs and why does he need such a number of ammoniac to cool down the temperature in his room Accompany a lodger who pieces together sinister details on that strange doctor The conclusion seems utterly absurd Well, here you really get goosebumps I hope you don t see any stains of water on your ceiling at home or in your flat Reasons for them could be different to what you thought Intriguing, bizarre and very scary Absolutely recommended

    With this tale of horror set in 1923 New York City, H.P Lovecraft 1890 1937 touches on two subjects that, judging from the proliferation of films and novels spotlighting these peculiar topics, have continually aroused our human imagination cryonics and zombies I say touches on since Cool Air is neither a story of low temperature preservation for the sake of future resuscitation nor is it about voiceless, emotionless blank faced corpses brought back to life, however, quite strangely and qu With this tale of horror set in 1923 New York City, H.P Lovecraft 1890 1937 touches on two subjects that, judging from the proliferation of films and novels spotlighting these peculiar topics, have continually aroused our human imagination cryonics and zombies I say touches on since Cool Air is neither a story of low temperature preservation for the sake of future resuscitation nor is it about voiceless, emotionless blank faced corpses brought back to life, however, quite strangely and quizzically, what happens is a close fictional cousin to both The tale begins when our young narrator takes up residence on the third floor in a four story brownstone on West 14th Street in downtown Manhattan and tells us, You ask me to explain why I am afraid of a draught of cool air why I shiverthan others upon entering a cold room, and seem nauseated and repelled when the chill of evening creeps through the heat of a mild autumn day There are those who say I respond to cold as others do to a bad odor As it turns out, the tenor of the entire story unfolds not within an atmosphere we customarily find in horror stories, an ambiance of darkness, silence and isolation but revolves around feelings of cold and smells that disgust during the midday and evening hours in the middle of a bustling city All goes well at the apartment for our gentlemanly, well educated, well bred, well mannered narrator until one evening he hears a dripping coming from the apartment above as he becomes simultaneously aware of the stench of ammonia He summons his Hispanic landlady who explains how there is a Dr Mu oz with his special equipment up on the fourth floor, a Dr Mu oz who is an accomplished physician, a physician who, through the goodness of his heart, gave emergency care to a workman injured completing a job at the apartment She then hurries up the steps to deal with this issue Days pass and one afternoon the narrator suffers one of his recurrent heart attacks, an attack where he needs the intervention of a doctor he then recollects the landlady s words and makes his way as quickly as possible to the fourth floor When his knock is answered, we read Nevertheless, as I saw Dr Mu oz in that blast of cool air, I felt a repugnance which nothing in his aspect could justify And this is only the beginning the narrator has further reflections during his initial encounter leading to future meetings and dealing with the good doctor Rather than noting and commenting on the subsequent eerie happenings of this Lovecraft tale, permit me to offer a few reflections on the two topics I cited above cryonics and zombies Firstly, pertaining to cryonics, there is an actual Cryonics Institute founded in the United States in 1976, about 50 years after the author penned this tale, an institute that continues to conduct research in effectively freezing people for years and then unthawing them so they can take advantage of future medical breakthroughs What appears as a subject for science fiction and horror stories one day can becomes technological and scientific reality another day Moving on to zombies, is there anythingalarming than the living dead walking around serving an evil leader, confronting, harassing, haunting, or even attacking innocent men and women and children I recall watching those old black and white films made back in the 1940s and 1950s with zombies at the command of some demonic mastermind, usually marching in pairs, mentally and emotionally zoned out, usually in dark underground passages, Those un dead beings created from the remains of corpses really gave me the creeps Such was the climate within the publishing world, when H.P Lovecraft submitted Cool Air to the pulp magazine Weird Tales where his tales were regularly accepted, the head editor rejected his work In its own way, an unthinkable thumbs down since Lovecraft was one of the prime contributors to the magazine However, in this instance, the head editor feared a tale with such a gruesome, shocking, hideous, ghastly and otherwise grisly ending would provoke the censors to forbid the magazine to continue Of course, what people find acceptable or unacceptable changes with the times, but it is well to keep in mind how positively shocking Cool Air was to readers when first published in 1928 Available on line

    First published in Tales of Magic and Mystery March,1928 , Cool Air is one of only three stories that Lovecraft composed in New York City and it is the only one of those three that is not racist Moreover, although short in length and narrow in its range of effects, it is a very good horror story as well.It is a tale told by a tenant of an old NYC brownstone, who wishes to explain to his listener why he loathes the touch of cool air He tells of an ancient tenant who once lived upstairs Dr First published in Tales of Magic and Mystery March,1928 , Cool Air is one of only three stories that Lovecraft composed in New York City and it is the only one of those three that is not racist Moreover, although short in length and narrow in its range of effects, it is a very good horror story as well.It is a tale told by a tenant of an old NYC brownstone, who wishes to explain to his listener why he loathes the touch of cool air He tells of an ancient tenant who once lived upstairs Dr Munoz, a man irrationally afraid of death, who kept himself cool 56 degrees F with a self designed air cooling system powered by a gas engine One night, the gas engine goes on the fritz, and hideous consequences ensue.This minor work is close to perfection The adjectives are kept to a minimum, and his one lapse in taste, the thick Spanish dialect of Mrs Herrero the landlady Doctair Mu oz he have speel hees chemicals He ees too seeck for doctair heemself seecker and seecker all the time is mercifully brief It is a lot like Poe s The Facts in the Case of Monseiur Valdemar and a little like Machen s The Novel of the White Powdeer, but this work perhaps the first of Lovecraft s mature period has a distinctive chilly charm all its own

    An audiobook in Portuguese I found this short story very peculiar and interesting This story is about a poor man who knows an old and sick Spanish doctor with an obsession of defying death through all available means and therefore he keeps his apartment cold.

    It is a mistake to fancy that horror is associated inextricably with darkness, silence, and solitudeAn underpaid writer he does something for a magazine, anyway finds an acceptable cheap boarding house One of the other residents, a medical professional, is obsessed with keeping the temperature low He has a particularly urgent reasonThis was very short, moderately icky, and surprising in that view spoiler the hapless young fellow is actually okay at the end, which isn t often the case It is a mistake to fancy that horror is associated inextricably with darkness, silence, and solitudeAn underpaid writer he does something for a magazine, anyway finds an acceptable cheap boarding house One of the other residents, a medical professional, is obsessed with keeping the temperature low He has a particularly urgent reasonThis was very short, moderately icky, and surprising in that view spoiler the hapless young fellow is actually okay at the end, which isn t often the case with Lovecraft protagonists hide spoiler

    Forced by circumstances to take lodging in a cheap rooming house, the narrator is delighted to discover that one of his neighbors is a well educated doctor a man of quality, even if he s a bit eccentric The most obvious oddity is that he s a recluse, never leaving his rented rooms and he keeps those rooms air conditioned to a shockingly low temperature However, it will eventually be revealed that there was a reason for his madness.
