"Had my body been the vehicle of an alien consciousness from palaeogean gulfs of time?"
A strange case of amnesia strikes down a university professor. Five years later, he awakes with no recollection of the intervening time. He launches an investigation and discovers the horrifying reality behind his affliction, making a discovery that reverberates with cosmic horror.
Many scholars consider The Shadow Out of Time to be one of HPL's highest achievements in weird fiction. Here the scope of the horror reaches across the cosmos and through the vast essence of time itself. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre brings the weird tale to life as it might have been broadcast during Lovecraft's lifetime. This old-time radio adaptation features a cast of more than a dozen professional actors, exciting sound effects and a thrilling original musical score by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for The Call of Cthulhu). Sit down, dim the lights, fire up the wireless and enjoy 77 minutes of exciting Lovecraftian drama, suspense and cosmic horror.Get it now!
