Crossover Cover: Return to Hell House
This novella (which first appeared in the anthology He is Legend: An Anthology Celebrating Richard Matheson) is a prequel to Matheson's novel Hell House, which is in the CU through references in two of Kim Newman's stories. It is mentioned that a member of a previous expedition to Maine's Belasco Mansion in 1931 was driven insane by the experience, and was shipped off to Castle Rock Asylum. The town of Castle Rock, Maine is a recurring locale in the works of Stephen King.
