Publisher's Summary

The ocean's imponderable depths contain mysteries far beyond the grasp of mortal men. From the adventurous mariners of ancient times, to simple fishermen of our own New England of yesteryear, mankind has found the seven seas to be both the source of life, and a watery grave. When man seeks to delve too deeply into that abyss, what appalling secrets will rise to the surface? And what will mankind do when faced with the unnamed horrors of the deep?

Fun and engaging!

This is a great introduction to Lovecraft which combines elements of Dagon, Call of Cthulhu, and Shadow Over Innsmouth into a 1930’s style “breaking news” radio broadcast. I highly recommended this. I only wish it was longer!

I actually thought at times this was a real story

This was so well done and so well performed that it sounded like an old broadcast. Worth the time spent and the listen.

Great production, creative reimagining of story!

A creative reimagining and dramatization of one of Lovecraft's most well known tale. Highly recommended, if you are a Lovecraft afficionado.

Superb Cast and Production, Highly Entertaining

This is an absolutely fantastic edition of the H.P. Lovecraft Society’s dramatization of the classic story Dagon. The original story was very short and ambiguous. The Society has crafted a frightening tale, mirroring the spirit of the old time radio dramas. Superb cast and production make a highly entertaining work come alive. I definitely need to get more of these!

Such a great idea!

How do you take a short story and flesh is out for an entire DART episode? Brilliant idea, combine it with the greatest episode of radio theater ever! While the news bulletins here are quite as believable as Orson Wells' were, this is still the perfect treatment for this story. Love that its treated as a sequel to Shadow Over Innsmouth as well as the recurring characters!

Perfect

I loved this. Best recording since their production of The Shadow over Innsmouth. Excellent radio theatre at its very best.

Ia Ia Daaaagon!

Much more Adaptation than direct reading, "Dagon" is here presenting a pseudo sequel to "The Shadow Over Inssmouth...

However it's still brilliantly narrated by the HP Lovecraft historical society.
