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).
