I'm just starting out as a fan of Lovecraft. As far as I know I've read about half of his fictional works. This was an excellent recording and narration and I've listened 3 times already.
The story is not one of my favorites but it is nevertheless effective and introduces the reader to some themes Lovecraft likes to play with(Yog Sothoth, artificial animation/consciousness, alien lifeforms). As a New Englander who went to college on the street where Lovecraft lived in Providence, I can say he certainly nails the atmospheres of ominous gloom which pervade some of the region's settings, and his prose puts other science fiction writers like hg wells to shame in my humble view.

This story represents a shift for Lovecraft away from fantasy towards science fiction. Still, it maintains the unknowable horror aspects that mark the Cthulhu mythos. A great listen!
