Publisher's Summary

H.P. Lovecraft collaborated with Zealia Bishop to craft this short story of the curse of Yig, a cousin of Quetzalcoatl. The next time you are tempted to squash that garter snake or run over a rattler, you will think twice after listening to this chilling tale.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Curse of the Yig to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    Who was the most memorable character of The Curse of the Yig and why?

    The creature in the asylum, of course


    Any additional comments?

    As usual, this short story has the characteristic Lovecraftian racism (even towards different types of Euro-Americans). That said, it did a great job of misdirecting the reader and leaving you questioning just what happened at the end. It's one of his better works (in my honest opinion) and definitely worth the 45 minutes.
