Lavinia Whateley, a deformed and unstable albino mother, gives birth to her hideous son, Wilbur Whateley, in an isolated village called Dunwich. The Whateley's come in three varieties; Stable, semi stable, and decrepit. Lavinia, Wilbur and the grandfather are of the latter variety. The grandfather has a very unhealthy interest in dark rituals and witchcraft, which he passes on to Wilber.
FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of H. P. Lovecraft's The Dunwhich Horror. Lavina Whateley has birthed an abomination, and now it's got free. First one family and then another are wiped off the face of the Earth, and this is just the beginning of the plan. Dr. Armitage, the Librarian at Miskatonic University, is scared. He's pieced together the clues and has a dreadful inkling of what is abroad. This ageing doctor may be the world's only hope.
Ah, the sweet, sweet singing of the whip-poor-wills. Surely one of the most innocent, purest bird songs one can know, plaintive and perfect in the clean morning light. Unless, of course, you happen to live near the decayed New England village of Dunwich, have seen the mad fires blazing from the ancient stone circles atop Sentinel Mountain, and remember the horrible events of 70 years ago.
