Publisher's Summary

For the first time ever, the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society has produced an audio recording of all of Lovecraft's stories. These are not dramatizations like our Dark Adventure Radio Theatre - rather, this is an audiobook of the original stories, in all-new, never-before-heard recordings made by the HPLHS' own Andrew Leman and Sean Branney exclusively for this collection. Working from texts prepared by Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi, this collection spans his entire career from his earliest surviving works of childhood to stories completed shortly before his death. All tales include original music by HPLHS composer Troy Sterling Nies. This audio bonanza features 74 stories adding up to more than fifty (50!) hours of Lovecraftian listening fun, professionally performed and recorded for your enjoyment.

Best Lovecraft Collection on Audible!

This is the best reading of H.P. Lovecraft I have ever heard. Leman and Branney's passion for the material make it captivating to listen to and I often forgot that I was listening to a non-dramatized version. The narration is well enunciated and well paced. In conclusion, if you are looking for a collection of Lovecraft's fiction that doesn't include forced contextual or bibliographical information I would recommend this audiobook everytime.

Chapters not identified

I have no idea which story I’m listening to. Why were titles not given? Seems like a foolish oversight.

A single major flaw

The recording was lovingly done with meticulous detail done to pacing and tone, accurately conveying tension. The only flaw is that no chapter is named. Over 50 hours of audio and there is no way to jump to a recording and no way to know which story is where. This NEEDS to be fixed.

Exactly what I’ve been looking for.

I’ve gotten several other HPL collections to listen to and they have all been awful in some way or another. But these guys really deliver a fantastic performance and cover a much wider range of stories and shorts than any other collection I’ve tried. Highly recommend

Beautifully Horrifying

Highly recommend this audio book! To those new to H.P. Lovecraft I'd recommend listing to The Call of Cthulhu first. This really gives you an idea of what his writing style is like, as well as understanding the lore behind the Great Old Ones. As far as narration goes 5/5.

not the complete fiction

this recording leaves out most of Lovecrat's collaborations, and as such cannot be called complete.

CRAFT a Credit as you will LOVE this edition

Apologies for the headline.

Andrew Leman and Sean Branney have done a stellar job with in bringing this production to life and it is certainly one of the best editions I have purchased. Unfortunately as with many Audible titles; the audiobook is marred by a lack of annotations in the chapter sequence. There is no information other than chapter numbers.Thankfully reviewer Aransas R. has done a formidable job in creating a table of contents you can just copy and past into your first clip/bookmark as a note. If, like me, you like to be able to navigate your way around 181 chapters then checking out Aransas R's review is a must. Without it I would have been adrift in a metaphorical sea of stories. Only one minor detail I noted is that Azathoth should be listed as Chapter 15 not 14. Other than that, Aransas R has saved me a lot of work and grief for which they have my gratitude.

In short - buy it.

Need chapters titles!!

Stories great - small and large.

Narrations excellent. Love that it’s read by two that obviously know and love h p lovecraft.

One big problem - 50 hours of audio, dozens of stories to pour through and no chapter titles. So going back to a short story you may of liked means jumping through chapters to find the right one.

Other than that great.

I figure Lovecraft must’ve been paid by the word

Sorry, I meant to say... upon undertaking to indulge my inexplicable intellectual appetites with the queer and ponderous labyrinthine volumes of HP Lovecraft, obeisance I paid at last, toilworn and discomposed at the altar of inescapable judgement that this eldritch virtuoso of archaic language must - as far as was discernible from the accursed preponderance of the tome - have been recompensed handsomely by some nameless employer for each and every hideous word.

The best

Follow Heinz57 for the chapter instructions and this is the best collection, and with Coyle’s Innsmouth has jumped to the top of my list Fantastic narration really brings these stories to life. Not overly dramatic, but reminiscent of early radio shows, entirely in keeping with the stories. Worth a credit for anybody with an interest. Looking forward to many hours listening to all of this. Highly recommended for any HPL devotees.
