I hadn’t realised that the Gollancz doorstopper collection of less well-known Lovecraft, titled Eldritch Tales: A Miscellany of the Macabre, now has a professional quality audio book version available.

It contains readings of a lot of the more obscure Lovecraft items, which I suspect Wayne June may never get around to recording. The items include, among others:

History of the Necronomicon
The Alchemist
A Reminiscence of Dr Samuel Johnson
Memory
Despair
Psychopompos: A Tale in Rhyme
The Nightmare Lake
Poetry and the Gods (with Anna Helen Crofts)
Ex Oblivione
The Crawling Chaos (with Winifred Virginia Jackson)
The Horror at Martin’s Beach (with Sonia H. Greene)
Hallowe’en in a Suburb
The Green Meadow (with Winifred Virginia Jackson)
Nathicana
Two Black Bottles (with Wilfred Blanch Talman)
The Last Test (with Adolphe de Castro)
The Wood
The Ancient Track
The Electric Executioner (with Adolphe de Castro)
The Trap (with Henry S. Whitehead)
In a Sequester’d Providence Churchyard Where Once Poe Walked
The Evil Clergyman

Only “‘Afterword’: Lovecraft in Britain, by Stephen Jones” seems to be omitted, though apparently it’s in the printed volume.
