A Lovecraftian Collection of Weird Tales

In his Commonplace Book and and his lengthy essay Supernatural Horror in Literature, author H.P. Lovecraft carefully assessed weird tales through the ages. He named a great many stories that he admired. The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society has curated a collection of 43 of the best of them and recorded them as audiobooks for your listening enjoyment. Read by the HPLHS' own Andrew Leman and Sean Branney and featuring original music by Troy Sterling Nies, these eerie tales will delight your mind and chill your blood.

This collection features forty three tales totaling roughly fifty hours of thrilling storytelling by masters including Blackwood, Dickens, Kipling, Machen, Chambers, Conan Doyle, Blackwood and Poe. You'll likely meet new authors whose works you may not know. The collection features a special audio Afterword in which Mssrs. Branney and Leman share their thoughts as editors and readers of the collection in a casual conversation.

Deluxe Edition. Due to the massive size of this collection, we are not offering it on CD (it would take 39 CDs). This collection comes packaged in a custom designed faux library book which artfully holds a custom designed 16Gb USB flash drive containing all of the stories in a format that's permanent, portable and easily added to your audio collection. The Deluxe Edition also comes with a free download of the stories.

Download Edition.  Start enjoying the tales immediately via digital download. No shipping, no taxes, just weird tales! Because the collection is large, we recommend than you download it to a computer first and then sync the files to your phone or tablet - it generally works better that way, although it can be downloaded directly to any device that can manage a 5Gb .zip file.

Free Samples. To give you a taste of the collection, we're giving you two stories to enjoy in their entirety absolutely free
