  3. Can’t wait to give this a listen. The hound is one of my favorite H.P.L. stories.

    Cheers and thanks for posting.


  4. O gawd how I love “Ye Hound”!!! This is an excellent reading and I am thankful to have it. I was recently given a wonderful gift from an eldritch artist: a replication of the Hound amulet describ’d in ye tale! It haunts me!!!
