Publisher's Summary

For decades, an old Providence church has stood empty, silently looming in the city's skyline. As a young writer looks into the history of the abandoned church - and the cult that once resided there - an ancient horror stirs. Will he be able finally to solve a mystery shrouded in darkness, or has he merely paved the way to become its next victim?

Loved the final sentence!

My first HPLHS experience, and I have never read the story before, so I don’t know how it compares to the original, but this version was very good.

The sound effects and different character voices really brought the story to life. It was quite creepy in certain parts and was a nice bit of entertainment for an hour or so.

Fall into the Ebon Darkness of Oblivion...

A fairly typical, but still frightening Lovecraft story.

This story accompanies "The Shambler From the Stars" by Robert Bloch.

A tale of the empty black void that lies between worlds and how gazing too long thereupon can drive any normal person into madness, the Haunter in the Dark is Enjoyable and chilling as always.

While as usual, listening to Lovecraft's stories without adaptation can be frighteningly dull, the HP Lovecraft historical society again brings to life a chilling tale. Stellar work.

Amazing!

This is an amazing production - the dramatization is "on the edge of your seat" worthy!!

So, I'm off to find my next listen by the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society!

Great

These dramatized versions of HPL are very good. They are well worth the money and time.
