Lovecraft, H.P. Easter Egg - Lovecraft's Revenge

In early 1923, English author Walter de la Mare wrote a story that parodied HPL's stories called "The Creatures." In September, 1923, Lovecraft published "The Rats in the Walls." In this story, the narrator, who is much like Lovecraft himself, kills and eats an annoying neighbor named Walter de la Poer. This name is a double pun. 'Poer' is very similar to the French word for pig, porc. Also, 'mare' in Old English means "creature that brings terror and fear," which is where we get the term Nightmare. Poer is French for 'fear.'
