I'm reading Matt Ruff's horror novel Lovecraft Country (2016). The second chapter, entitled "Dreams of the Which House", is a story about a haunted house.

I found the title plays on Lovecraft's original work, "The Dreams in the Witch House" (1932). I guess it's a kind of wordplay because 'which' and 'witch' are homophones. But still, I can't quite grasp what "the which house" in Matt Ruff's novel means. Can I interpret it as the witch house but in kind of parodic way?
