Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Audio
09/15/2013
An Antarctic expedition by Miskatonic University researchers unearths evidence of an ancient nonhuman civilization on the Barren, the supposedly lifeless windswept interior of the Antarctic plateau. When the researchers find strange fossils of unfamiliar creatures and ancient carved stones, their discoveries lead to horrors buried beneath the mountains that cost the scientists more than they expect. Narrator William Roberts gives an appropriately grave and dramatic reading. VERDICT Lovecraft's intentionally archaic and elaborate style, at its peak here, will appeal to fans of Edgar Allan Poe and his other 19th-century gothic predecessors.—Jason Puckett, Georgia State Univ., Atlanta

He wrote more than one hundred stories, and achieved popular acclaim in such publications as Astounding Stories and Weird Tales. Though he died in 1937, the small press publisher Arkham House was established in 1939 to preserve Lovecraft’s works for future generations.
