The narrator recalls that he always ended at an ivy wall with a gate in it. After years of unrelenting depression in the real world, the narrator decides that he will try and go through the gate of his dreams, wherein he swallows "the drug".

He erects a great monument to Kalos over his tomb, but an oak tree decides to overtake it, shaping into what looks like a deformed and monstrous human figure. Musides' fears about the tree sapping the vital force from his friend's grave are finally struct down by lightning - and with it the whole monument.

The Cats of Ulthar Audiobook

The Cats of Ulthar

Author: H.P. Lovecraft Narrator: Adriel Brandt Release Date: July 2018

Cat haters beware. This piece by H.P. Lovecraft is largely memoirish, whereby the narrator is compelled to tell the reader about Ulthar after petting his own cat. When a travelling caravan passes through, a young orphan named Menes finds his beloved black kitten has gone missing and fears the worse-that his beloved kitten had suffered a torturous end at the hands of the town cat killers. Annoyed by the lack of action on the part of the townspeople, Menes invokes a prayer that results in the cats of the town rising and slaying the cat-killing couple. This action subsequently brings into effect a law that forbids the killing of cats in Ulthar.

A Reminiscence of Dr. Samuel Johnson Audiobook

A Reminiscence of Dr. Samuel Johnson

Author: H.P. Lovecraft Narrator: Adriel Brandt Release Date: July 2018

This spoof is from the point of view of a colleague of Samuel Johnson, something that showcased Lovecraft's passion for antiquities and classical writers. The narrator introduces himself as being 228 years old and goes on to document his interactions with Dr. Johnson. Being older and in a time when respect for elders was everything, the narrator expects Dr. Johnson to appreciate his writing, which the man does not. While the tale goes on to document other awkward meetings with Dr. Johnson, he ultimately dies younger than the narrator - who goes on to continue writing and living an unfulfilled life.

The Street Audiobook

The Street

Author: H.P. Lovecraft Narrator: Adriel Brandt Release Date: July 2018

Though The Street tries to remain in the realm of horror and the supernatural, what it really amounts to is one of the earliest written documents of Lovecraft's political stance and stance on other races. In this story, the street is the protagonist. Lovecraft documents its growth from quaint and colonial New England town to downtrodden and dirty as immigrants move in after the first world war. When a "vast group of terrorists" living in the neighborhood plot to overthrow the federal government on July 4th, the street decides to take mattersinto its own (metaphorical) hands.

When he wakes up in a San Francisco hospital he thinks the ordeal is over-that is, until the sea god comes to haunt his waking and sleeping life.
