Between 1925-27, H.P. Lovecraft wrote Supernatural Horror in Literature, an extended essay about about the history of the weird tale. In it he describes supernatural horror from its earliest manifestations up to the 1920s. Lovecraft offers his own candid opinions on the merits (and deficiencies) of the world's canon of strange literature.
The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society recorded the essay as an audiobook and made it available as a pre-order bonus for its Collected Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft audiobook. Now the recording is available for the first time as a standalone download. Read by Sean Branney and Andrew Leman of the HPLHS, the recording is approximately three hours long. The audio is available as a high quality MP3 and is only available via download. The text is edited by Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi and the recording features original music by Troy Sterling Nies.
Don't miss your chance to hear Lovecraft as a literary critic, addressing the genre in which he was to prove himself as a master.
