Howard Phillips Lovecraft has been hailed by literary critics as the inventor of modern horror and a cultivating force behind such modern writers as Robert Bloch ( Psycho), Wes Craven ( The Craft, Nightmare on Elm Street, Scream), and Stephen King ( Pet Cemetary, Carrie, Children of the Corn), just to name a few. These following Lovecraft tales can be found in this audiobook:

"The Shadow Over Innsmouth"
"Dagon""The Shadow Over Innsmouth" and "Dagon", arguably the most mind-provoking stories by H. P. Lovecraft, are read by Wayne June ("The Dunwitch Horror" and the "Call of Cthulhu") bringing to life horrors from the mind of the Master himself, in a way that only he can.

Lovecraft's Best

Utterly awesome. Innsmouth is my favourite Lovecraft story and if you aren't familiar with the escape scene then you need to hear it - horror at it's best!

lovecraft as it should sound

Brilliant story of course, but Wayne really brings the chilling horror of Lovecraft's words to life.

Wayne June made this a must-listen

Comparing to the first volume and the fifth ( the two I have finished before), this volume may not be as packed in contents. Both stories are on the Deep Ones so it made sense to put these two together. "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" is good, the pace started slow and almost monotonous, but increasingly action-packed and exciting from 1/3 to 4/5 mark, typical of Lovecraft's works. "Dagon" though, is too short and lacks dramatical narratives. Compared with the first volume which has "The Dunwich Horror" and "The Call of Cthulhu", the length might be a shortcoming of this volume.
But overall it was worth listening solely because of the exceptional performance of Wayne June, whose delivery of Zadok (Shadow) and Narrator (Dagon) is strikingly vivid and emotional, that carries the listener through the most monotonous and tangling of Lovecraft's passages. And you don't want to miss out on the Deep Ones.
So, the conclusion is: Get it. Get the entire collection.

This is my best purchase I've made on Audible thus far.
The stories; genuinely horrifying and disturbing, made manifest by the excellent voice work of Wayne June, is sure to strike you with an unsettling feeling quite difficult to shake off.
If you're in the mood on a stormy night, close your eyes and let yourself be swept into the maddening world of eldritch horror.
