An hour's satisfaction

For a foreigner's bus commute it's a good companion. Easier to follow than some of the others dramatizations.
Before starting the dramatization reading the description of the story helps a lot if you are unfamiliar with the plot.
Developers are rewarded all my stars til I feel otherwise which likely will not differ in the near future.

Great performance

The actors are great. They make you see the words. The added sound effects bring the story to life (a car driving by, a horse drawn carriage, people talking in the background, glass breaking). Every character has a different voice. Great reading. I loved it.

Best version of this story yet!

I've listened to several different readings of this story as well as several dramatizations of it and this one has surpassed them all. It stayed true to Lovecraft's work while bringing that work to life in such a cool way. Please keep these Daek Adventure programs coming!

great rendition

I've seen and read reanimator and this dramatization makes the story even better. I hope they try to make this version into some sort of film.

excellent adaptation of a classic

All I have to say about this work is I adore the HP Lovecraft Historical society. i was thrilled from the start to finish. can't wait to hear others. I have Dagon to hear next.

Brilliant fellows

Brilliant fellows. I had to listen to this a second time to really appreciate it. It is a tight work and represents the story accurately. I wish it were longer.


Yesterday I listened to it a second time. It stands up to listening to again.

Mad Scientist Episode

This was another great episode of Lovecraft horror. Differs from the film and manages to be creepy and disturbing. As always, the voice cast is superb. Love the Miskatonic school song! A scientist who really is mad to the core.
