Title:  The Call of Cthulhu and Other Stories
Author:   H. P. Lovecraft
Read by:  William Roberts
Genre: Science Fiction
Category:  Fiction
Rating:  B

At the heart of these four stories (The Call of Cthulhu, The Hound, The Dunwich Horror and Dagon), as with all the best of Lovecraft’s work, is the premise that Earth was once inhabited by powerful and evil gods, just waiting for the chance to recolonize the planet.  Cthulhu is just one of these gods, lurking deep beneath the sea until called into being by cult followers who – like all human beings – know not what they do. 
Not until recently has Lovecraft become one of the most influential American writers through his dark and mythic tales that terrify Man.  I continue to the love creepy descriptions of so many macabre scenes!
