I’ve added some new audio dramas to the Lovecraftian Audios page! Some of these are adaptations of Lovecraft stories, and others are Lovecraftian-themed. Most of these are by the new Suspense (a revival of the old time radio show), but one of them is from Nightfall, a radio show that aired in Canada in the early 1980s.
I’m a fan of Nightfall, and I was listening to it the other night and stumbled across the episode In the Name of the Father (download here). What a pleasant surprise! A writer takes a vacation in a small town on the east coast… with unpleasant results. Like most Nightfall episodes, this story is very well done. The atmosphere of this creepy town by the sea is palpable.
All the episodes below are free to download. That’s not usually the case with the new Suspense show, so this is a treat. And by the way, if you like the new Suspense shows below, check out their other episodes at Audible.com.
