‘The Hound’, by H.P. Lovecraft – Free Audio

Time for another H.P. Lovecraft audio story from my collection!  This time, it’s The Hound:

In my tortured ears there sounds unceasingly a nightmare whirring and flapping, and a faint distant baying as of some gigantic hound. It is not dream – it is not, I fear, even madness – for too much has already happened to give me these merciful doubts.  St John is a mangled corpse; I alone know why, and such is my knowledge that I am about to blow out my brains for fear I shall be mangled in the same way.

  1. 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!!!


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

    Cheers and thanks for posting.


  3. This wonderfully written story is excellently portrayed in this audio format.The reader never alters the pitch of his voice & is clear & focused all the way through reading this story.I am just glad Lovecraft did not add a female character to this story.
    One of the best audio stories that i have listened to,if not the best.
