The Call of Cthulhu and other audio recordings...


A repost with updates...

Unfilmable.com contributor MorganScorpion shares her latest audio recordings of H.P. Lovecraft (new recordings appear at the bottom of the list)...

I became disabled a few years ago, and as a result of having to give up work, I turned to daytime television. It was hell. So I turned to audiobooks and embroidery to pass the time. Eventually I discovered Librivox; an online organization dedicated to recording out-of copyright books and putting them online for free distribution. Librivox uses volunteers, and always needs new ones. After downloading and enjoying their recordings for over a year I began to feel I should give them something back for all the entertainment they had given me. In short, I volunteered out of guilt, intending to record a few chapters then go back to just listening. To my surprise, I enjoyed myself. I've been a regular contributor ever since. Lovecraft fans are really in love with the man's work. They can't get enough of it. But there is a dearth of his later works available online, as the copyright status of his later work is uncertain. So I thought I'd fill in the breach, so to speak. I hope in time that a professional actor, like Jeffrey Combs or John Lithgow will do Lovecraft full justice.
