Ye Complete Audio HPL!!


Nothing delights me more than an excellent audio presentation of H. P. Lovecraft's fiction. I don't mean dramatic renditions, but readings of ye actual texts. Because we live in an age of intense Lovecraftian coolness, we now have been presented with an audiobook of Lovecraft's complete fiction as read by Sean Branney and Andrew Leman. 

For the first time ever. the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society has produced an audio recording of all of Lovecraft's stories. These are NOT dramatizations like our Dark Adventure Radio Theatre--rather, this is an audiobook of the original stories, in all-new, never-before-heard recordings made by the HPLHS's own Andrew Leman and Sean Branney exclusively for this collection. Working from texts prepared by Lovecraft scholar S. T. Joshi, this collection spans his entire career from his earliest surviving works of childhood to stories completed shortly before his death. All tales include original music by HPLHS composer Troy Sterling Nies. This audio bonanza features seventy-four stories, adding up to more than fifty (50!) hours of Lovecraftian listening fun, professionally performed and recorded for your enjoyment.

Due to the massive size of this collection, we are not offering it on CD (it would fill 43 CDs). This collection comes packaged in a custom designed faux library book which artfully holds a custom designed 16Gb USB flash drive containing all the stories in a format that's permanent, portable, and easily added to your audio collection.

The entire collection is also available via digital download--straight from our servers to your computer. No shipping, no texes, just a Lovecraftian bonanza of audio fun. We offer collections where each story is its own file or where longer stories are broken into multiple chapter files. It's approximately 5Gb of audio files, so we recommend you download to a computer rather than phone or tablet. 

For those on a budget, we've also edited our own "Selected Tales of HPL" collection, featuring recordings of some of our favorite stories available via download at an even more affordable price. Enjoy eighteen hours of Lovecraft's "greatest hits" for just $20.00 This collection includes:
The Statement of Randolph Carter
Pickman's Model
The Picture in the House
The Hound
The Call of Cthulhu
The Colour Out of Space
The Dunwich Horror
The Whisperer in Darkness
At the Mountains of Madness
The Shadow Over Innsmouth
The Shadow Out of Time

It's taken us three years to record, edt, mix and master this collection. We hope it will provide Lovecraft fans with a high quality means to enjoy these stories read aloud by professional actors who share their love for HPL's writing.

  1. Dear Wilum,
    I don't know if you had been aware that the folks over at The H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society were working on this project, but I wasn't aware of it until they made the official announcement of its impending release; and it was a marvelous, and very unexpected surprise.
    I thought then, and even more now that I have received my copy, that this was something I had never dreamed of anyone creating; and I don't think any other group could have produced such a treasure as this!
    Now, I've begun to hope they will follow through with the possibility of producing the companion volume of all of the revisions and collaborations too.
    But today, I'm tickled to know that you and I both have added this to our collections of Lovecraftian goodies to enjoy.
    I even copied all of my files from the thumb drive to my hard drive right away, so I could put the "Book" away for safe-keeping; because I will always treat this as a treasure!
    Here's hoping all is well with you,
    and that you have a great time listening!

    Will
