Eldritch Tales: A Miscellany of the Macabre Audiobook

Eldritch Tales: A Miscellany of the Macabre

Author: H.P. Lovecraft Narrator: A Full Cast, A Full Cast Release Date: January 2014

Following the phenomenal success of Necronomicon, its companion volume brings together Lovecraft’s remaining major stories plus his weird poetry, a number of obscure revisions, and some notable nonfiction, including the seminal critical essay “Supernatural Horror in Literature.” Gathering together in chronological order the rest of Lovecraft’s rarely seen but extraordinary short fiction, this collection includes the entirety of the long-out-of-print collection of thirty-six sonnets “Fungi from Yuggoth.” Lovecraft died at the age of forty-seven, but in his short life he turned out dozens of stories that changed the face of horror. His extraordinary imagination spawned both the Elder God Cthulhu and his eldritch cohorts, as well as the strangely compelling town of Innsmouth, all of which feature here. “One is drawn into Lovecraft by the very air of plausibility and characteristic understatement of the prose, the question being, ‘When will the weirdness strike?’”—Joyce Carol Oates, praise for the author

At the Mountains of Madness Audiobook

At the Mountains of Madness

Author: H.P. Lovecraft Narrator: Edward Herrmann Release Date: June 2013

A master of terror and nightmarish visions, H. P. Lovecraft solidified his place at the top of the horror genre with this macabre supernatural tale. When a geologist leads an expedition to the Antarctic plateau, his aim is to find rock and plant specimens from deep within the continent. The barren landscape offers no evidence of any life form—until they stumble upon the ruins of a lost civilization. Strange fossils of creatures unknown to man lead the team deeper, where they find carved stones dating back millions of years. But it is their discovery of the terrifying city of the Old Ones that leads them to an encounter with an untold menace. Deliberately told and increasingly chilling, At the Mountains of Madness is a must-have for every fan of classic terror. “One of the greatest short novels in American literature and a key text in my own understanding of what that literature can do.”—Michael Chabon, New York Times bestselling author

The Call of Cthulhu and Other Stories Audiobook

The Call of Cthulhu and Other Stories

Author: H.P. Lovecraft Narrator: William Roberts Release Date: October 2011

At the heart of these stories, as with all the best of Lovecraft's work, is the belief that the Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonise their planet. Cthulhu is one such god, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who - like all humans - know not what they do. It is because of these dark, mythic tales with their terrified awareness of the limits of Man's knowledge, that H.P. Lovecraft is one of the most influential American writers.

Author: H.P. Lovecraft Narrator: Stephen Shagov Release Date: January 2016
