Bad Medicine download now available from @HPLHS.

Bad Medicine is the collection of medical-themed Mythos and Poe stories: “Cool Air,” “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar,” and “The Picture in the House.” Admittedly, the last one is perhaps a bit of a stretch when we’re talking medical. But certainly anatomy is involved.

I’m getting the CD itself, but check out the MP3 version. HPLH’s Dark Adventure Radio Theater productions are a favorite of mine. I mean, they must be: I’m not even trying to get a cut of the sale.

In the e-mail: @HPLHS’s Dagon: War of Worlds. (DART)

DART stands for “Dark Adventure Radio Theater,” in case you’ve missed somehow that I buy the HPL Historical Society’s radio dramas whenever I happen to have a combination of a bank account balance and the sweet, horrible cravings.  I picked up Dagon: War of Worlds (which has been a bit expanded from Lovecraft’s original story) when I could no longer keep myself from pre-ordering The Haunter of the Dark. I bought the physical CDs, of course — they come with props — but the HPLHS sends over the mp3s of the shows when you buy a physical copy, so Dagon’s unzipping as we speak.

The anticipation consumes me.  What terrors will be revealed?  What dizzying vistas shall I… um, hear? We’ll soon find out…

New DART pre-order from @HPLHS: The Haunter of the Dark.

This is gonna be one of the good ones. The Haunter of the Dark is a great story and the HPL Historical Society always does a good job with their Dark Adventure Radio Theatre entries. I look forward to it.

New DART (Thing on the Doorstep) coming out soon!

As in, maybe by the end of the week.

Already pre-ordered; The Thing on the Doorstep is one of HP Lovecraft’s more interesting works for me, because it’s one that takes place in an area that would have been within HPL’s own comfort zone.  It’s not out in the wilderness, or the depths of space, or even – horror of horrors! – NYC; this is a horror story that’s set right in the man’s backyard, and that gives it a little extra flavor.  Plus, this is one that should work well on radio.

@HPLHS’s ‘Thing on the Doorstep’ Dark Adventure Radio Theater going to the CD printer’s.

If that’s what that sort of thing is called, mind you. Anyway, I’m looking forward to the latest DART: I finally managed to finish both The Shadow Over Innsmouth and At The Mountains of Madness last weekend (listened to ’em while building furniture), so The Thing on the Doorstep will come just in time*. It’s a shame that Lovecraft never developed that story further: it might have had the legs to be a novella or even novel.

 

*Although there are any other number of CDs that I have yet to buy
