If you know of other audio versions of Lovecraft's works that are still available, I'd be grateful if you'd let me know. Many thanks!



The quote of the day comes from Percy Bysshe Shelley, in honor of his birthday today.

"Music, when soft voices die"
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory;
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heap'd for the belovèd's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.
