Howard Phillips Lovecraft has been hailed by literary critics as the inventor of modern horror and a cultivating force behind such modern writers as Robert Bloch (Psycho), Wes Craven (The Craft, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream), and Stephen King (Pet Semetary, Carrie, Children of the Corn), just to name a few.

The Rats in the Walls
After its complete restoration, the narrator of this tale moves into his ancestral family home. Soon afterward, however, he begins to hear noises in the walls. Suspecting rats, he sets out traps but finds these vermin are not the kind so easily dispatched. One of the all-time creepiest of Lovecraft's tales.

The Shunned House
In the city of Providence stands an antique home of which everyone whispers. Never called haunted exactly, it is known as a place unlucky, one in which people have supposedly died in alarmingly great numbers. This is what Lovecraft's narrator tells us, just before he and his uncle begin a series of investigations into the old place, a place with a terrible odor, one that is stronger in the basement than any place else.

The Music Of Eric Zann
In the city of Lights, an impoverished student hears incredible music coming from peaked garret overhead. He knows little of the violin, but is certain from the fantastic pieces he hears night after night that he is in the presence of a highly original genius. But, it isn't long before he finds himself wondering, why does Zann only play at night? And why every night?

Brought to life again by the incomparable Wayne June come horrors from the mind of the Master himself, in the way that only he can. Download and start listening now!

    " This volume contains "Rats in the Walls", "The Shunned House" and "Music of Erich Zann". All very entertaining, Music of Erich Zann may be the best. Many references to his Cthulhu mythos. "

    " "The Music of Eric Zann" was easily my favorite in this set, though "The Rats in the Walls" did remind me a lot of King's short story "Jerusalem's Lot" (I think it is in Night Shift). "

    " Very atmospheric. A nightmare inducing read. "

    " Spooky dark magic, madness, existentialism...I can see how this has influenced so many modern horror writers. Also, I now understand what critics mean when they refer to writing as "Lovecraftian": Thick and chewy overwritten descriptions abound!

    Better than I expected. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dyanna | 4/28/2010

    " Very creepy, and very good. Gothic and demonic monsters as told in the early 1900's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 9/20/2007

    " This was actually my first time exposed to either of these stories, and let me tell you that this audio format is excellent. The reader had the perfect voice for portraying these erie tales of horrors from beyond our world. I can't wait to try volume 2. "

About the Author

H. P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) was born in Providence, Rhode Island, where he lived most of his life. His relatively small corpus of work—three short novels and about sixty short stories—has nevertheless exercised a broad influence on subsequent writing in the field. In fact, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the twentieth century.
