Excellent Series for those who love Lovecraft...

This release and the whole series is new, well produced, and provides an excellent medium for those who enjoy H.P. Lovecreaft. There are a total of six albums in the series, although Audible has five on sale.

If you are a follower of Lovecraft you know how difficult it is to get solid, well recorded audio books into the library. This is the path. Their principal reader, Wayne June is quite balanced: with clarity and no strong sense of being a goul, as some other readers are.

The recordings are priced about right for non-Audible-credits payers. I doubt that one 3-hour download is worth a full credit (which can be worth a full 20 hour download for other recordings). My suggestion: Since there are an even number of books available, have a two-for one sale.

Narrator is amazing

I've loved Lovecraft for a long time, but I feel like I'm experiencing it for the first time hearing it read by Wayne June. He has an incredible grasp of how to do character voices. He brings the lushness of Lovecraft's prose to life. Passages that I must admit I've found boring when read on the page become genuinely creepy when read aloud by June's cultured, insinuating rasp. I'll be listening to this one over and over.
