The Dunwich Horror and The Call of Cthulhu , two chilling tales from one of the original masters of horror"/>

Dark Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft Volume One

H. P. Lovecraft, Author , read by Wayne June. Audio Realms/Wildside $25.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-8095-6268-8

Volume one contains The Dunwich Horror and The Call of Cthulhu , two chilling tales from one of the original masters of horror. (Volume Two contains The Shadow Over Innsmouth and Dagon .) The Dunwich Horror follows the tragic events in Dunwich when Wilbur Whateley delves into dark occult practices with deadly repercussions. The Call of Cthulhu explores the remaining artifacts and notes by several people pursuing information around the mysterious figure of Cthulhu. These dark tales become unnerving with the deep and solemn voice of Wayne June. He provides a great range and energy to the characters, particularly in Dunwich . His almost regretful tone instills listeners with dread and fear. June does falter slightly in that occasionally his character voice carries over into his narrative voice. The director and sound editor sometimes fail to make sure that his voice stays consistent throughout the audiobook, with sound and loudness shifting significantly several times. These are marginal issues, though, since Wayne's performance and Lovecraft's words leave the listener looking forward to future volumes. (Jan.)
