Re: What are you currently reading?
I did a search of “booktalk.org Lovecraft,” and I was surprised to find that there’s no thread devoted to him or his writing. H.P. Lovecraft. Horror, early 20th century. Maybe there IS a thread but I missed it. This is the one that turned up in the search, and I see that Lovecraft is mentioned.
At any rate, I’ve put together a page of audiobook recordings of his work. Link below:mikesheedy.com/other-stuff/other-people ... lovecraft/
To my ear the prose is well suited to the audiobook format. It’s mostly large chunks of descriptive writing, with little to no dialogue (voice actors trying to imitate characters’ speech often sound...forced).
You can right-click the links on the page to open the pdf and a recording at the same time, to read along if you want. I recommend listening/reading to “Dagon” at least. It’s less than 15 minutes long and is a good introduction to Lovecraft’s work. Some consider him to be the father of “cosmic horror.”
