Publisher's Summary

Ah, the sweet, sweet singing of the whip-poor-wills. Surely one of the most innocent, purest bird songs one can know, plaintive and perfect in the clean morning light. Unless, of course, you happen to live near the decayed New England village of Dunwich. Unless, of course, you have seen the mad fires blazing from the ancient stone circles atop Sentinel Mountain. And unless, of course, you remember the horrible events of 70 years ago and happen to be familiar with the name "Whately". Then the singing of whip-poor-wills isn't so sweet, and their patient waiting seems anything but innocent. This is a full-cast, soundscaped audio dramatization of a classic work by one of the masters of horror.

Audible Editor Reviews

Thomas E. Fuller brings an essential Lovecraft tale to life in this dramatized adaptation.  H. P. Lovecraft is known for his tales of horror and the performances by Thomas E. Fuller, Bill Jackson, and John Johnson capture the overwhelming feelings of dread and suspense that dominate this thrilling ghost story staple.
The Dunwich Horror chronicles a series of strange occurrences and sorcery near a small town in H. P. Lovecraft’s fictional Miskatonic Valley. Fuller's adaptation is more than just a simple narration; lively performances combined with the occasional unnerving chatter of whippoorwills echoes the horror story dramatizations of radio's golden age.

I knew it was a performance, but I didn't really enjoy it as much as I should have. I just think I prefer a straight reading to the dramatization.
