Madness and incantations in the nightmares of poets. Vicious ancient cults in the mountains and swamps. A corpse city rising in the sea.

I chose this version as the voices of the narrator was gritty and held within it the level of fear I felt appropriate for a Lovecraft story. However there was not much variation in tone, and after a while this gritty fear became tiresome. As the story was short, it wasn’t too bad however.
