Uvula Audio‘s James Campanella has added a complete reading of H.P. Lovecraft’s “quintessential work of horror” to his podcast feed. In China Miéville’s introduction to the Modern Library paperback edition of At The Mountains Of Madness, he describes the novella as “taxonomy as horror.” If you’re in the mood for some “mind blasting terror” – and really who isn’t these days – be sure to give it a shot.
