      "Good Listen"

      This is my first venture into H.P. Lovecraft. I really like the narrator's voices, which add to the vibe set by the stories. The only issue I see people having is the choppy rhythm moments, which are few and far between.

      "Wayne June is perfect for Lovecraft's tales"
      What did you love best about The Dark Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft, Volume 3?

      I liked hearing a collection of some of Lovecraft's best tales in one volume. Wayne June's voice is perfect for the brooding atmosphere of Lovecraft's tales. I have heard other tales ruined by the narrator. Not here though.


      Have you listened to any of Wayne June’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      I have listened to several volumes of Lovecraft's work read by Wayne June and by others. By far, Mr. June is the best of them. I have not heard him in any other writings but would be interested to do so.

      "Great Tales, some of my favorites, well told!"

      Wayne June's voice is perfect for Lovecraft. He truly excels when given the weird, the wild, and the bizarre and if there's a writer who supplied more of those qualities in his work per word than Howard Phillips Lovecraft, June should read that too!
      A match made in R'Yleth for fans of weIrd fiction.

      H. P. Lovecraft was a genius. His work is the high bench mark for modern horror. No one has reached his greatness since. I urge the reader to listen to

      "Great stories, sadly racist"
      Is there anything you would change about this book?

      As a sincere fan of Lovecraft, I always approach his work with a measure of regret. His works show a brilliant imagination and a captivating style, marred by a constant undertone of 19th century racist psuedo-science. While this can be set aside in many of his stories, some of his most overtly racist tales are collected here.


      Have you listened to any of Wayne June’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

      Wayne June is wonderful with Lovecraft's work, to the point where I have to consciously give other (perfectly good) readers a chance. He is very good at conveying the sense of unease that permeates even the most innocent of Lovecraft's sentences.

      Lovecraft's fantastical writings are improved only by Wayne Junes perfect voice and performance! get all of his works read by this man as no other performer gives the material the slow ponderance required to feel the horror of these stories
