Would you consider the audio edition of The Curse of the Yig to be better than the print version?


Who was the most memorable character of The Curse of the Yig and why?

The creature in the asylum, of course

Any additional comments?

As usual, this short story has the characteristic Lovecraftian racism (even towards different types of Euro-Americans). That said, it did a great job of misdirecting the reader and leaving you questioning just what happened at the end. It's one of his better works (in my honest opinion) and definitely worth the 45 minutes.
