    Story
    "This is it: The two GREATEST Horror stories!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Dark Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Volume One the most enjoyable?

    These are the best of H.P. Lovecraft's genius, mind blowing, dark universe mythos. No other horror writer has yet come up to his level of perfection since.


    What other book might you compare The Dark Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Volume One to and why?

    I would compare it to


    What does Wayne June bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nothing can exchange the personal experience of reading, but Mr June has a great voice, and is a wonderful reader.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Dark Worlds of H. P. Lovecraft, Volume One and why?

    Wilbur - Here H. P. Lovecraft shows us the thing that should not be. Chilling!


    Any additional comments?

    These are the best two horror stories since Poe. H. P. Lovecraft changed horror fiction forever with these stories. As a young reader they rocked my world! - and they still have all their power. No one has come close to Lovecraft's genius yet.

    Story
    "It served its purpose, but I don't recommended it"

    I wanted to learn more about H.P. Lovecraft and this audiobook served that purpose. With all due respect to Lovecraft fans, the story and the storytelling as very dated. Lovecraft may be the godfather of modern horror, but his storytelling style is low on action and heavy of retelling third-hand information. The stories have sketchy beginnings and no satisfying endings. His racial attitudes are a historical reflection of the times, but they do not endear us to the author or the story. H.P. Lovecraft's books are historically important in the world of modern literature, but their entertainment value has faded. The production values for this audiobook reflect this too.
