H.P. Lovecraft

Howard Phillips Lovecraft, August 1890 - March 1937, was an American author who achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Virtually unknown and only published in pulp magazines before he died in poverty, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th-century authors in his genre. Lovecraft was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he spent most of his life.

  • At the Mountains of Madness

    By H.P. Lovecraft

    Read by Jon Bennett

    Geologist Dyer attempts to stop an expedition at the risk of encountering dangerous aliens.

    "For me, Jon Bennett's rendition of 'Madness' is the most appropriate. His tone has the authenticity - neither melodramatic nor too flat - to make you forget you're listening to a reading, allowing you to see the icy landscape, and be in the story. This is one of the great horror stories, along with House on the Borderland, by William Hope Hodgson. Add to that list Dark Matter, by Michelle Paver, and you have the beginnings of the great, and stylish horror stories of the last hundred and some years. No horror fan should be without this edition. Essential. More from Jon Bennett, please..." - Audible
