Doctor Who meets H.P. Lovecraft! and more Lovecraftian audios

While you’re waiting on issue #16, here are some audio versions of stories from past issues, as well as others, and links to other Lovecraft audios I’ve found online.  (And remember, I have a very complete list of Lovecraftian audios here.)

Doctor WHO: The Starship of Madness - [free download, Doctor Who and the Starship of Madness] Doctor Who meets H.P. Lovecraft!  It’s an audio drama, but it shows the video of the actors.  That’s cool and all, but you’ll enjoy the story a lot more if you just listen to it without watching it

Colour Out of Space, The – [free download from archive.org, The Colour Out of Space] A good reading.  West of Arkham the hills rise wild, and there are valleys with deep woods that no axe has ever cut. There are dark narrow glens where the trees slope fantastically, and where thin brooklets trickle without ever having caught the glint of sunlight. On the gentle slopes there are farms, ancient and rocky, with squat, moss-coated cottages brooding eternally over old New England secrets in the lee of great ledges; but these are all vacant now, the wide chimneys crumbling and the shingled sides bulging perilously beneath low gambrel roofs…

Desert Mystery!  Gas & Go!, by Ann K. Schwader, from Lovecraft eZine issue #8 – (Download the audio version of this story here, or click the play button below.  Read by Morgan Scorpion.)


From Beyond – [free download from The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast, From BeyondHorrible beyond conception was the change which had taken place in my best friend, Crawford Tillinghast. I had not seen him since that day, two months and a half before, when he had told me toward what goal his physical and metaphysical researches were leading; when he had answered my awed and almost frightened remonstrances by driving me from his laboratory and his house in a burst of fanatical rage. I had known that he now remained mostly shut in the attic laboratory with that accursed electrical machine, eating little and excluding even the servants, but I had not thought that a brief period of ten weeks could so alter and disfigure any human creature…

Picture in the House, The - [free download from The H.P. Lovecraft Literary PodcastThe Picture in the HouseSearchers after horror haunt strange, far places. For them are the catacombs of Ptolemais, and the carven mausolea of the nightmare countries. They climb to the moonlit towers of ruined Rhine castles, and falter down black cobwebbed steps beneath the scattered stones of forgotten cities in Asia. The haunted wood and the desolate mountain are their shrines, and they linger around the sinister monoliths on uninhabited islands. But the true epicure in the terrible, to whom a new thrill of unutterable ghastliness is the chief end and justification of existence, esteems most of all the ancient, lonely farmhouses of backwoods New England; for there the dark elements of strength, solitude, grotesqueness, and ignorance combine to form the perfection of the hideous…

Ouroboros Apocrypha, The, by Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, from Lovecraft eZine issue #13.  (Download the audio version of this story here: Part one - part two, or click the play buttons below.  Read by Morgan Scorpion.)



Rats in the Walls, The – [free download from archive.org.  This audio is by The Black Mass.]

Shadow Out of Time, The - [$10 download, The Shadow Out of Time, by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society]  As I write this, the HPLHS has created four Lovecraftian audio dramas.  They are all excellent, but this one is my favorite.

Supernatural Horror in Literature - [listen on Youtube: Supernatural Horror in Literature, chapter 1 and intro] Read by Morgan Scorpion.  You can listen to the other chapters on her Youtube channel.
