Publisher's Summary

This volume collects, for the first time, the entire Dream Cycle created by H. P. Lovecraft, the master of twentieth-century horror, including some of his most fantastic tales, such as:


"The Doom that Came to Sarnath" - Hate, genocide, and a deadly curse consume the land of Mnar.
"The Statement of Randolph Carter" - "You fool, Warren is 'dead'!"
"The Nameless City" - Death lies beneath the shifting sands, in a story linking the Dream Cycle with the legendary Cthulhu Mythos.
"The Cats of Ulthar" - In Ulthar, no man may kill a cat…and woe unto any who tries.
"The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath" - The epic nightmare adventure with tendrils stretching throughout the entire Dream Cycle.
Plus twenty more tales of surreal terror!

Great readings except for one!

If you could sum up Dreams of Terror and Death in three words, what would they be?

Enjoyable, Lovecraft, Dreamlands

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dreams of Terror and Death?

The reading of the Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath

Have you listened to any of uncredited’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

All of the readings were great, especially Bronson Pinchot's EXCEPT for "High House in the Mist" read by Tom Wyner, which was absolutely awful.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could have, but tons of stories to listen to.

Any additional comments?

While a few of the readers take just a little or no adjustment time to get used to, Tom Wyner is just awful with his reading of High House on the Mist. I honestly fast forwarded through that after giving him about 5-10 minutes. He reads it like it's a newspaper and has no emotion nor gives any color to the reading like the others do.
The readings of the Quest of Unknown Kadath (I forget the reader) and all of Bronson Pinchot's readings (you never know who reads and can "get" Lovecraft, these days) are excellent, so basically, if you're a fan of Lovecraft's character Randolph Carter, you will enjoy every story involving him.
I gave this book 5 stars for all facets as long as you ignore High House in the Mist. Maybe find another version or just read it yourself. ;-)
(And if you have never read Lovecraft stories before, this is an interesting set of his stories to take up. I suggest Googling "Lovecraft Dreamlands" before you do, though, so all of the unusual names don't immediately distract you from the stories involved).

A mixed bag

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This is a very mixed bag of Lovecraft stories and the collection itself is not well named. Not all of these stories are from Lovecraft's dream cycle and a couple don't seem Lovecraftian at all! Some of the early stories are incomplete but most are worth listening to.

Would you be willing to try another book from H. P. Lovecraft? Why or why not?

I have read and listened to most of Lovecraft's stories and consider myself a fan. It's hard to pin down the appeal, I think it is the feel and antiquity of the stories. I don't know anyone else that reads Lovecraft and it always surprises me when I read how popular he is.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The Case of Charles Dexter Ward is my favourite Lovecraft story in this collection.

Any additional comments?

Only after buying this book did I realist that ALL of the stories contained are also in the Necronomicon or Eldritch tales. I would suggest you buy those 2 books and skip this one.
