The HPLHS is pleased to present the first original audiobook of Lovecraft’s complete fiction, covering 74 stories and comprising more than fifty hours of professionally recorded audio. The stories are read by HPLHS founders and trained actors Sean Branney and Andrew Leman, from texts prepared by Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi. The recordings feature original music by Troy Sterling Nies. Three years in the making, this collection gathers all Lovecraft's tales, from those written in his youth to those written shortly before his death, in one comprehensive and unified collection.

The Complete Fiction of H.P. Lovecraft Audiobook is available in a Collector’s Edition featuring a faux old library book which holds a custom-made 16GB memory stick containing all of the stories as individual files. Download editions of the Complete Fiction as well as a subset of Collected Tales are available through the HPLHS’s online store. All editions are scheduled for release on August 20 (H.P. Lovecraft’s birthday).

Customers who pre-order before the release date will receive hours of bonus content, including a complete reading of Lovecraft's essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature" and an interview of Sean Branney and Andrew Leman of the HPLHS with Chad Fifer and Chris Lackey of The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast.

These are NOT dramatizations like our Dark Adventure Radio Theatre - rather, this is an audiobook of the original stories, in all-new, never-before-heard recordings. This collection spans his entire career from his earliest surviving works of childhood to stories completed shortly before his death.

The stories were recorded at The Jungle Room studio in Glendale, CA. Our thanks to engineers Daniel Viafore, Jeff Stone, Julian Beeston, Taeghan Hagood and studio manager Kevin Anderson for risking their sanity in listening to us read for infinite hours.
