At the heart of these stories, as with all the best of Lovecraft’s work, is the belief that the Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonise their planet. Cthulhu is one such god, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who – like all humans – know not what they do.

"Confusing Audio Mix"
H. P. Lovecraft was never appreciated in his lifetime, but achieved posthumous fame through his influential works of horror fiction. Today he is now widely seen as one of the most significant 20th century authors in his genre. The Call of Cthulu was written in the summer of 1926 and was first published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, in February 1928. It concerns a terrifying cosmic entity that is described from several points of view.
Attending to the affairs of his late uncle, a man pieces together disturbing notes, articles, and horrendous carvings of a nightmare beast on stones neither of which are from this world.

The leader of the cult, a horrible creature, the description of which you will find in this audiobook has been sleeping beneath the sea for eons waiting to be called from his slumber. It could be looking for you!
"Take a pass."
Howard Phillips Lovecraft is among the greatest American writers of fantasy and the supernatural. Born in 1890, a native of Providence, Rhode Island, his health was uncertain from childhood and he led a sheltered early life. His semi-invalidism enabled him to read omnivorously, and as a shy imaginative child he began to invent what would in his adult life become a whole macabre fantastic world of his own, peopled by creatures out of his own weird imagination.
"Discovery of an old want"
