Dagon, by H.P. Lovecraft – audio download

Time for another Lovecraft audio from my collection.  This time, it’s Dagon:

I am writing this under an appreciable mental strain, since by tonight I shall be no more. Penniless, and at the end of my supply of the drug which alone, makes life endurable, I can bear the torture no longer; and shall cast myself from this garret window into the squalid street below. Do not think from my slavery to morphine that I am a weakling or a degenerate.

One response to “Dagon, by H.P. Lovecraft – audio download

  1. I have become extremely fond of audio Lovecraft. Because of my work as a Lovecraftian author, I am always returning to Grandpa’s fiction to see what I can glean from it. For this reason I buy most of the new editions of Lovecraft’s tales, so that I have different books to pick up and dip into. Repeatedly, repeatedly, I return to devour Lovecraft’s prose. Yet — there is a certain charm to being able to listen to the tales — it gives one’s brain a new way to appreciate the fiction. I hear things from an audio reading that evades me on my numerous personal readings. I can hear the cadence of Lovecraft’s prose, which heightens my appreciate for Lovecraft’s language, his gifts as a writer.
