Publisher's Summary

Madness and incantations in the nightmares of poets. Vicious ancient cults in the mountains and swamps. A corpse city rising in the sea. After Professor Angell meets a sudden and mysterious end, Francis Thurston, while sorting through his uncle's papers, makes a fateful discovery that ties these malignant manifestations together. Taken together, what they awaken from the deep will, as Francis warns us, "Open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age."
Of the dozens of tales that comprise the mythos of H. P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu, first published in Weird Tales in 1928, is the cosmic core of his universe. Please enjoy this foreboding novella, and beware what dreams may come thereafter.
This production of The Call of Cthulhu is an official selection of the 2016 HEAR Now Festival.
