Publisher's Summary

The Colour Out of Space was written in March 1927, and first published by the American science-fiction magazine called Amazing Stories in September of the same year. 

In the tale, an unnamed narrator pieces together the story of an area known by the locals as the "blasted heath" in the wild hills west of Arkham, Massachusetts. The narrator discovers that many years ago, a meteorite crashed there, poisoning every living being nearby. Vegetation grows large but foul-tasting, animals are driven mad and deformed into grotesque shapes, and the people go insane or die, one by one.

Sucks you in!

This was a fairly short story as audio books go, but what a ride it was. This one sucks you in early and doesn't let go until the end. The thing I will remember is the impending sense of dread I felt as I listened to this story. This listen was made all the better because it is a Horrorbabble presentation. As always, a superb narration by Ian Gordon. If you enjoy Cosmic Horror, or if you just enjoy Horrorbabble, I believe you should give this one a try.
