    "Wayne June masters this content."

    If you enjoy Lovecraft already, or you would like an excellent introduction to his work, this title is an excellent choice. Wayne June delivers these stories with a tone sensitivity to the material that makes listening an involving experience.

    "Beautifully dark and dismal"

    A great classic featuring 2 of the best Lovecraft stories which is only enhanced by the gripping narration of Mr Jude.

    "exiting takes of horror"

    Wayne June is an amazing narrator, and the two stories are captivating and I find my self craving to dive deeper into the world of H. P. Lovecraft.
    the language is hard to follow at times for a non native English speaker. but the vivid detail I'm which the writer has written the stories help to paint a vivid picture of the world and characters. a good start into the works of Lovecraft.

    "perfectly narrated."

    never before has there been a narrator so perfect for the subject matter. chilling and enthralling from it's inception the words ring in your conciousness as a choir of eldrich horror and narrative history.

    "Perfect Narration for a Perfect Story"

    I discovered both HP Lovecraft and Wayne June far too late in my life. Lovecraft wrote his works of horror, science fiction, and fantasy so well all those years ago that you will be amazed upon experiencing these tales that he is not a modern author. My first experience Wayne June during his narration of Throne of Bones. Then again, here. Any horror story without his narration does itself a disservice.

    Story
    "Best voice ever."
    If you could sum up The Dark Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Volume One in three words, what would they be?

    Classic done right.


    Which character – as performed by Wayne June – was your favorite?

    Dunwich horror just sums up how awesome this whole thing is. Great story with a truly talented actor reading it. His voice add an element of creepy and dread but also emotion and flow that makes a good story great. This is how it was meant to be done.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Creepy and involved with a scene of ruptured dread that makes the whole experience fun.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like dark stories, Lovecraft, good story telling, or just a dam good performance by a talented reader, get this one.
