    In great cities of the world, humanity congregates, and commerce, culture, and cosmopolitan sophistication blossom in their gardens.

In these shadows thrives a dim underworld, peopled by nefarious characters brought together from every godforsaken corner of the globe. Can a lone policeman make a stand for decency against the godless denizens of New York’s most loathsome slum, or will he find himself consumed by the filth and depravity of nameless cults?

    H.P. Lovecraft (1890 - 1937) was an American horror fiction writer. Though he died in poverty and was only published in pulp magazines before his death, he is now regarded as one of the most significant 20th century authors in the genre. Lovecraft's most popular book is, perhaps, At the Mountains of Madness. He also wrote The Call of Cthulhu, along with many short stories and literary correspondences. In this rare recording, he is interviewed as part of a WPA project during the New Deal.
