Heavily influenced by Edgar Allan Poe and other gothic-horror writers, American writer Howard Phillips "H.P." Lovecraft (1890-1937) is considered a master of the horror and weird fiction genres. His stories, including those of the Cthulhu Mythos, have influenced a number of distinguished authors, most notably Stephen King.
"There are, I think, four distinct types of weird story: one expressing a mood or feeling, another expressing a pictorial conception, a third expressing a general situation, condition, legend or intellectual conception, and a fourth explaining a definite tableau or specific dramatic situation or climax." - H.P. Lovecraft
In this collection, we have examples of all four. Performed in his unique narration style by Frank Marcopolos, the listener is transported into thirteen magical worlds of wonder.
