Publisher's Summary

FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of H.P. Lovecraft's classic tale of horror, Dreams in the Witch House.

Walter Gilman rents a room in a house that the locals shun. They call it the Witch House because of the strange lights seen late at night. Walter thinks there's something more to it than just lights. He has mathematical occult research to carry out, and the angles of the walls in the Witch House suit his dubious needs.

Oh, Fated Horror Story Protagonist...

This is one of my very favorite Lovecraft stories, because while it fiddles with some of his more common themes (dream realities, anthropomorphic beasties, the occult, etc.), it delves a little more darkly into details such as [SPOILER] infanticide and rats eating peoples' hearts out. The only thing I have to whine about here is the reader-- who gave a very satisfying performance by his abilities no doubt (and I'm sure he's a swell guy), but I just wish he had an American accent, given the writer of the story and the setting. Just because it's classic macabre doesn't mean it has to be in an English accent, right? Poe was from the Mason-Dixon line, and Lovecraft was a Yankee. Come on, represent mo-fo. 'Merica!

spooky

very spooky, I can't believe it took me this long to listen to a HP lovecraft story. He sets up the scenery and mood very well. The narrator is excellent as well.
