Northern Lights (Quiet, Please): Listen via the player below, or download hereI was standing on an immense plain that stretched so far, so far into the distance, the plain was snow and eternal ice. A dead, cold, white world with the blackest sky above me. And the northern lights reached from horizon to horizon. Even through the high altitude suit, I could feel the biting cold. And I was afraid, shivering, abjectly afraid. The streamers of the northern lights reached down toward me and wrapped about me. I heard the sound of voices screaming into my mind, I – I could understand them – I wished heartily I’d never played around with cosmic forces…

  1. Thanks for these links. I’ve heard Dunwich Horror before, and it was nicely done.
    Sorry if you’ve already talked about it before but it would be interesting to know what you think of the Lovecraft pastiches done by the HPLHS, like Dagon – War of Worlds and A Solstice Carol.


  2. I have heard all these and they are great shows. Quiet Please and Nightfall are series that are worth looking up.


  3. If you haven’t heard “The Dunwich Horror” I really recommend it. I am looking forward to hearing the others.


  4. Thanks for these. I’ve heard the Dunwich Horror before; it’s very well done. I hope the others are as good.
