ELDRITCH TALES A Miscellany of the Macabre

by | Read by Tom Weiner, Simon Vance, Simon Prebble, et al.

Horror • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

In this companion piece to the classic NECRONOMICON, an ensemble cast proves that Lovecraft’s fantastically unusual scenarios and grim elegance of phrasing work best when read aloud. All the narrators bring their own interpretations to these tales, and the collection is strengthened by the diversity of their approaches. The works are frequently complex, often jarring, and profoundly surreal, and the variation of tone, pacing, and voices helps to keep listeners engaged, while the narrators themselves provide vivid characterizations with chilling stoicism. Some narrators choose an atmospheric world-building technique; others favor a direct realism-based strategy. While their storytelling tactics may differ, each narrator’s delivery contains a clarity and comprehension that serve to make these pieces accessible and engrossing for listeners.
