Publisher's Summary

FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of H.P. Lovecraft's The Colour Out of Space.

A surveyor from Boston is practising his skills in preparation for a new dam when he comes across what the locals call the 'blasted heath' just outside Arkham. The ground looks unnatural and it spikes his curiosity, but he can only find one person who will tell him its secrets.

Literally Perfect

I can think of no better voice to give the nameless surveyor recounting a terrible story he was told. An often overlooked aspect of Lovecraft's writing is how beautifully poetic his descriptions of terrible madness are. This recording brings that out. It's just perfect.

One of Lovecraft's best

Some of Lovecraft's best prose, very little of the racism. As usual, he over-explains & drowns the reader in foreshadowing, but still manages to make a trippy space mist frightening.
