Taken together, the works of H. P. Lovecraft create a terrific world of elder gods, ancient aliens, and cosmic horror. This new original collection of Lovecraft's earliest stories lays the foundation for that world and prefigures many of his later infamous tales.
In "The Nameless City", an intrepid explorer encounters a shunned, crumbling city in the desert, older than the earliest known of humankind but perhaps not as abandoned as was thought. In "The Tomb", a young man's lifelong obsession with the locked crypt of an ill-fated, extinct family slowly turns to madness...or possession. In "Dagon", a sailor adrift in the Pacific Ocean awakes to discover himself stranded on the risen sea floor...and the abomination that has risen along with those ancient depths. And in "The Music of Erich Zann", a destitute university student is entranced by the mysterious and alluring music of the old, mute viol player who lives in the apartment above - until he finds the music serves a dark, urgent purpose.
Please enjoy the stories of these four unfortunate souls as they enter the eldritch universe of H. P. Lovecraft.
Table of contents: "The Nameless City"; "The Tomb"; "Dagon"; "The Music of Erich Zann".

Best Rendition of Lovecraft Stories I've Found Yet
I'm a fan of Hellegers' work. I've listened to a few of his audio books. This was my favorite of his productions--uniquely suited to his voice.
These are some of Lovecraft's best. Dagon in particular has always been a favorite. As has The Tomb. Hellegers voice is deep, soulful and stirring. I found myself enraptured. The narrator went away and I was encapsulated in the story, my own petty life a mere memory compared to the compelling narrative. The price for this small collection can't be beat. I wish Hellegers would do an audio rendition of all of the stories in the entire Cthulhu Mythos. Dagon has just a hint of that story. There is so much more and his voice would certainly do it justice. Helleger's performance of The Tomb was the most compelling of all four stories for me. Such a beautiful story, fantastically told.
