Considered to the be one of most influential American authors, Howard Philip Lovecraft is synonymous with some of the best fantasy and horror fiction of the 20th century, second only to Edgar Allan Poe.
Innsmouth is a dilapidated seaside town with secrets as a hybrid race of half-human and half-amphibian creatures worship the gods of Cthulhu and Dagon…. Written in 1931, and published by the Visionary Publishing Company some five years later.
”It’s a genre blessed with many great stylists, H. P.Lovecraft’s baroque imagination and outrageous use of language still manages to stand head and shoulders above the rest. A timeless master of the macabre and the true connoisseur of dread.” (Michael Marshall-Smith)

Great Rendition of Lovecraft's Story
- James Turner
Probably Lovecraft's best book
I have listened to 'Shadow' three times now since downloading it just a few months back- yes, its that good!
This is easily Lovecraft's best book, and the narrator does a fantastic job of bringing it to life.
Anyone who has ever spent time in a remote community where they have felt uneasy and unwelcome will certainly recognise the mood of the story.
The best moment in the book is the twist in the tale and I don't want to be a spoiler!
The narrator delivers the prose with such skill and poise you are just carried along with him. His accent skills when needed are top-knotch.
It made multiple shivers run down my spine.
