All About Audio(books)—H.P. LOVECRAFT

The Dark Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft are perhaps the perfect treat this Halloween season. Six volumes of short stories filled with suspense, intrigue, horror, myth, cosmicism, and the arcane by a writer Stephen King has called “the twentieth century’s greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale.” Add to that the aesthetics of oral story telling, and you have yourself the perfect scary story for the campfire.

Treat yourself with to a sample listen of “Haunter of the Dark” from volume five of the Dark Worlds collection, a story from Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos, in which Lovecraft spars with a character created by his contemporary, Robert Bloch. Layered and complex, “Haunter of the Dark” pulls you in from the first line. “I have seen the dark universe yawning…where the black planets roll without aim…where they roll in their horror, unheeded, without knowledge or luster or name.”

    Hi Kathy,
    Dorchester’s audiobook catalog is a great selection of romance, horror, Westerns, and thrillers! While we don’t have an audiobook club, we do offer a direct-from-the-publisher dicsount of 10% off any order placed on our Web site or via our telecenter (800-481-9191).

    If you like Stephen King, you’ll LOVE Jack Ketchum. I’d recommend Hide and Seek or Offspring. Our customer service center is also always available to give great recommendations if you’re looking to try a new author or genre!

    Happy listening,
    Allison Carroll
