Excellent Lovecraft

This is one of my favorite Lovecraft stories, and I happen to greatly enjoy the narration by Howard King. I can’t place his accent, but I would guess he is possibly Scandinavian or German, speaking British-inflected English. At times he even sounds like he could be from a Southeast Asian country. Whatever the case, I enjoy listening to his reading immensely, and I’m happy to see he has recorded several more stories, which I’m looking forward to listening to.
