Because there’s nothing like reading horror stories to broaden your range.
I chose this one because I wanted to do something more narrative, with little to no first-person dialogue. At the same time, I wanted something with some length and depth, without becoming overwhelmed with maintaining multiple characters and unique voices. As it was, this took twice as long to record as I expected, and at final edit is over 80 minutes.
Lovecraft is masterful at crafting a villain out of virtually thin air. The story builds to an intense, chilling climax around the 60-minute mark, and I have to admit I very nearly didn’t finish the project at that point.
Still, it’s an engaging read. Classic ghost storytelling at its best!
