The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s “Dark Adventure Radio Theatre”Carsten Schmitt has some interesting news about the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society‘s Dark Adventure Radio Theatre:

After publishing “The Dunwich Horror” quite recently, the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s “Dark Adventure Radio Theatre” has announced the publication of yet another (audio) dramatization of one of the Grandmaster’s stories. “The Shadow Out of Time” will be available from October 1st 2008 on CD and as an MP3 download. As usual, it can be expected that the CD will not only feature the audio drama but also a host of goodies, like “authentic” (i.e. fake) newspaper clippings and photos. And its getting even better! Already announced is an adaption of probably one of the most popular and well-known stories of Lovecraft, “The Shadow over Innsmouth“. To prove that this not only a Cthulhuists wet dream DART have put up a production diary, including a seven minute “behind the scenes video”, which not only shows the actors in the recording studio but also provides some glimpses into the dialogue for the coming “The Shadow over Innsmouth“. Seems like times are looking good for Lovecraftian audio theatre. Fhtagn!

Cool, and Carsten promises a review of the “The Dunwich Horror” too!

Four on Seven

BBC Radio 7 - BBC7The 7th Dimension
Readings:
The Fall of the House of Usher
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Brave New World

Plus The Scarifyers #2!

The Fall of the House of Usher: Edgar Allan Poe‘s classic tale of gothic horror, a masterpiece of “dramatic irony and structural symbolism” (whew, okay…) and no doubt his most famous work. Suffice it to say that this is one creepy story that seems to exist in some dark phantasmal dream. What is the power that the House has over the Usher Family? Told in 2 parts beginning on Thursday, September 25. Read by Sean Barrett.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow: Washington Irving‘s spooky tale of two rivals and an encounter with a ghastly horseman with…you guessed it…no head. Am I spoiling too much here? A traditional favorite and hey, just in time for Halloween. Oh, by the way, nothing wrong with the movie versions but the original’s a must read…or a must listen, as the case may be. Told in 3 parts beginning on Sunday, September 28. Read by Martin Jarvis.

Brave New World: Aldous Huxley‘s nightmare vision of a dystopian future. Often compared to Orwell’s 1984, critic Neil Postman contrasts the two: What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one…Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us. Heavy stuff. Told in 10 parts beginning on Monday, September 29. Read by Anton Lesser.

The Scarifyers series continues on BBC 7 with adventure #2, The Devil of Denge Marsh written by Paul Morris. When a government minister melts in Margate, it’s a job for Lionheart and Dunning. Terry Molloy (Dunning) described the series as being like Tin Tin and Dick Barton meet The X-Files. True to form, this one features an encounter with…no, it’s too horrible to tell! Presented in 3 parts beginning on Sunday, September 28. Produced by Cosmic Hobo. Full-cast audioplay. Stars Nicholas Courtney and Terry Molloy. – Trailer #1Trailer #2

Note that all BBC 7 programs are available to listen to online for six days via the Listen Again feature.
