Summary

Eleven uncanny stories inspired by the master of uncanny terror, H.P. Lovecraft.

One hundred years ago, H.P. Lovecraft created the Necronomicon, a grimoire of lost souls, magical rites and forbidden lore. Now, locked away, the hoarder of horror is after new voices, new blood, to add to his collection. 

Listen as he shares the tales that come to him, whispered through the keyhole and written in the dust. From ghost stories to encounters with demons, haunted houses and a fateful Celtic goddess, they will draw you into his claustrophobic and disturbing world, stir your imagination and awaken your deepest fears and nightmares.... 

Introduced by Stephen Hogan as H.P. Lovecraft, these chilling, intimate dramas feature full casts including Elizabeth Berrington, Geoffrey Streatfeild, Stella Gonet, Derek Riddell, Jamie Glover, Adjoa Andoh, Sara Poyzer and Eddie Marsan.

Weird Tales indeed! Entertaining? ...... never!

A collection of utter rubbish as far as i'm concerned. Obscure and outlandish in almost every way.

Lovecraft for the modern age

This is a fantastic selection of very different tales. It captures the ethos of Lovecraft perfectly and brings his style up to modern standards. All of the stories were enjoyable. It's a worthy collection to any horror library.
