Publisher's Summary

As a man surveys the countryside for the construction of a reservoir, he comes across a stretch of barren farmland leeched of life. An aged survivor of the town tells him the tale of a rural farmer's family and their path to madness and unspeakable horror. Lovecraft considered "The Colour Out of Space" to be the best of all his stories. Originally appearing in the September 1927 issue of Amazing Stories, it is one of his most frequently anthologized tales.

Horrible narration, ruins a great story.

Be sure to listen to preview before buying, I wish I had. Narration sounds like a speech synthesizer, no inflection at all, completely monotone, as if this were a recording for a remedial reading class to teach diction and pronounciation. After 2 minutes I couldn't take it anymore. Unfortunate, because I love the story.

Great story spoiled by poor reading

This is a great story, but the reading is so badly done -- with almost no emotion -- that the book is totally ruined.
