The Judge’s House is a story written by Bram Stoker. It is considered to be Bram Stoker’s greatest short story and one of Britain’s finest ghost stories. It was first published in 1891. Malcolmson needs time for his studies and rents a deserted old house. It was once owned by a mean judge. At late hours he always hears rats in the wainscot. Besides he’s irritated when he sees an extremely large rat near the cord for the alarm bell. That cord has a very eerie pre-history and plays an important part in the later part of the story. An extremely eerie gothic tale by the old master. I liked the plotting and the fine crafted character. Also the characterization of the judge is extremely well done. And the eyes of the rat. Nothing for people who are afraid of rats or of mean judges.
