Added two audios: “At the Mountains of Madness” and “The Shadow Over Innsmouth”

The BBC did a fantastic job with their audio versions of At the Mountains of Madness and The Shadow Over Innsmouth.  In my opinion, these are the best audios of these stories ever done.

I added them to the Lovecraft eZine audio page.  I’ve also posted them below, for your convenience.

Enjoy!

At the Mountains of Madness – [free to listen at Spoken World Audio: At the Mountains of MadnessI am forced into speech because men of science have refused to follow my advice without knowing why. It is altogether against my will that I tell my reasons for opposing this contemplated invasion of the antarctic – with its vast fossil hunt and its wholesale boring and melting of the ancient ice caps. And I am the more reluctant because my warning may be in vain…

Shadow Over Innsmouth, The – [free listen, play Youtube video below] Nothing that I could have imagined—nothing, even, that I could have gathered had I credited old Zadok’s crazy tale in the most literal way—would be in any way comparable to the daemoniac, blasphemous reality that I saw—or believe I saw. I have tried to hint what it was in order to postpone the horror of writing it down baldly. Can it be possible that this planet has actually spawned such things; that human eyes have truly seen, as objective flesh, what man has hitherto known only in febrile phantasy and tenuous legend?

  1. This is great!! Lovecraft stuff isn’t easy to find on audio…. especially for FREE!!
    AWESOME!
    P.S. this makes cutting the grass SOoo…
    much less crappy!

  2. I know them both from old, as Radio 4Xtra, as it now calls itself (used to be BBC7), has repeated them a zillion times. Having said that, I generally get caught into listrening to them almost every time they broadcast them. I SO love Richard Coyle’s voice… A nice find, Mike!
    PS. Hope you’re feeling better.
