These following Lovecraft tales can be found in this audiobook:
"The Shadow Over Innsmouth" and "Dagon", arguably the most mind-provoking stories by H. P. Lovecraft, are read by Wayne June ("The Dunwitch Horror" and the "Call of Cthulhu") bringing to life horrors from the mind of the Master himself, in a way that only he can.

"Narrator Wayne June's voice will give you the absolute lurking creeps." (SFFAudio.com)
Seriously. The story is amazing (because HP Lovecraft), but the delivery is singularly amazing because Wayne June has a voice that (as far as science can tell) narrated the birth of our universe and the subsequent elder god invasion shortly thereafter.
the best I've heard for Lovecraft narration. The Shadow of Innsmouth is not contained in the necronomicon and provides more depth to mythos, perfectly fitted with Dagon. I hope this series continues.
Great book , easy to follow and great read for anyone wanting to pick up tips on how to create an atmosphere . Great writing from the fore most expert in horror
This story was written in the 1930's, so the writing style takes a while to get used to if you're accustomed to reading/hearing more contemporary works, I guess. Honestly, I had to listen to it twice before I was able to follow the story. I tend to listen to these audiobooks while I'm doing other things so maybe if I wasn't a distracted listener, I could have picked up on it the first time around, but maybe not. I liked this audiobook because the narrator matches this writing style so well. Also, the story itself is kind of interesting, if you ever happen to hear/read about the reptilians/global elite in some of the alternative media.
This is my best purchase I've made on Audible thus far.
The stories; genuinely horrifying and disturbing, made manifest by the excellent voice work of Wayne June, is sure to strike you with an unsettling feeling quite difficult to shake off.
If you're in the mood on a stormy night, close your eyes and let yourself be swept into the maddening world of eldritch horror.
Wayne June does an exceptional job audibly creating the dark atmosphere portrayed in these timeless horror classics. Whether you're new to Lovecraft or brave soul returning for more, you won't be disappointed.
I have read these stories before, more than once, but I have to say that I think I enjoyed them more now when I listened to them. Wayne June brings the story to life in a way that I didn't get when I read it. I think more of the spookiness became clear and the story becomes more alive in audiobook form.
I now long to take part of more from Lovecrafts magnificient world in this form. It's pleasing since I didn't see myself going thorugh them all again but now I will. :)

Boy, that's tough. Who writes like Lovecraft? Deep ones? There have been many afterward, who have followed his genius. If I may, I'll offer up one I found quite fun: a graphic novel written by Neil Gaiman named
All. Wayne June's narration is compelling and dramatic. He's a great story teller.
What's worse than being chased by a mob of zombies? Being chased by a town full of stinky, creepy, fish-frog squiddies!
For some reason I like Lovecraft now and then for an absorbing tale. But if you've read him, you know you can get totally tangled up with the never-ending sentences and paragraphs.
But what makes this story so good is the narration. Because the narrator reads the characters in different-sounding voices and accents, you can keep up!
I can honestly say I've never heard such a captivating telling of a story! At first when the deep voice of the narrator came on, I thought I wasn't going to like it. But I think you would agree it is perfect for a Lovecraft tale.
I'm going to see if he narrates "The Mountains of Madness"! Thanks for the entertainment on my nightly walks! I have to remember it's getting dark earlier now and maybe switch to something a little less spooky!

Utterly awesome. Innsmouth is my favourite Lovecraft story and if you aren't familiar with the escape scene then you need to hear it - horror at it's best!
One of H.P. Love crafts best stories, worth a credit. Shame it's only a few hours long.
