@HPLHS’s MAD SCIENCE (DART) available for pre-order.

They’re adding a pre-order bonus, which is nice. And there’s an option to not make the donation; I offer no opinion one way or the other on whether you should or should not. I’m retired, me.

Being mailed: THE LURKING FEAR (DART, @HPLHS)

I’m mentioning it now because I just got a link for the MP3 for THE LURKING FEAR Dark Adventure Radio Theater program; the rest of the stuff comes via mail, but I can listen to the program tonight. I love these; the DARTs are fun to listen to and the props are awesome. If you ever decide to run a TTRPG session off of HP Lovecraft’s actual stories, the HPL Historical Society deliberately makes these props to be helpful for that. Eventually I’ll have the entire set…

In the [E-]Mail: @hplhs’s The Dunwich Horror (Dark Adventure Radio Theater).

Ordered the CD for The Dunwich Horror as usual, got sent the MP3.  This is the HPL Historical Society’s usual good work; slowly but surely, I’m getting the entire Dark Adventure Radio Theater collection.  I almost got this for the car ride down, but I ran out of time.

Hey! @HPLHS has released their two Cthulhu Mythos movies on Steam.

No, really.  October 30thThe Call of Cthulhu and The Whisperer In Darkness.  In my opinion, The HPL Historical Society have produced easily the two best straight cinematic adaptations of HPL’s stories — and they’re also easily in the top 20 of Lovecraftian movies, period.  The conceit of both is that they were filmed using the same techniques as were common during the years in which the stories were written.  That’s why Call of Cthulhu is a silent movie, while Whisperer in Darkness goes for a 1930s monster movie feel.  If you haven’t seen these yet, well, ten bucks a pop is reasonable.

New from @HPLHS: The Walakeas (Island Music for Deep Ones)

IT MUST BE MINE.

$10 for three songs on CD, but worth it, methinks. Listened to some of the samples from The Walakeas CD and it sounded good. Cthulhu Mythos meets 1950s tiki-themed Hawaiian music; what’s not to love?

‘Innsmouth Sailor.’

Not available on Amazon, alas for my referrals — but both the book and the CD of THE CURIOUS SEA SHANTIES OF INNSMOUTH, MASS. are absolutely worth your time anyway.

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.

New @HPLHS Dark Adventure Radio Theater: ‘Bad Medicine.’

The HPL Historical Society’s “Bad Medicine” is a Dark Adventure Radio Theater anthology: “Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: Bad Medicine brings three classic tales of horror and medicine to life in a 1930s-style radio drama. Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar” and H.P. Lovecraft’s stories “Cool Air” and “The Picture in the House” are brought to life by a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Reber Clark.”  They redid a little the Valdemar one for the DART, apparently; not much, but enough to make it fit the theme.

And if you’re wondering why not Herbert West: Reanimator — they’ve already done that one. Which I should get. I love these radio plays, after all.
