The Moon Pool and Other Wonders Audiobook
by H.P. Lovecraft, A. Merritt and others

Where does fantasy end and horror begin? Is there beauty in terror? Does horror possess a spiritual dimension? In these five classic tales written by acknowledged masters of the supernatural, these haunting questions are explored…but not fully answered.

Each of these timeless tales takes us to a different zone of terror, whether in a faraway land, or in a hidden pocket of the past. They strum chords in us we hardly suspect exist. They evoke our deepest fears as a kind of eerie wonder. And they whisper to our innermost souls that the reality we in which we dwell may be only one of many interpenetrating realms where mankind coexists in blind, uneasy ignorance….

First, in A. Merritt’s haunting “The Moon Pool,” we journey to the South Seas, where a moonlit pool hidden among the ruins of an ancient civilization conceals an inhabitant not of this Earth. “The Moon Pool,” is narrated by Joey D’Auria.

“The House and the Brain,” also known as “The Haunted and the Haunters” by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, explores the haunted house genre in a seminal story that inspired countless imitators. As you will hear, this is no ordinary ghost story. “The House and the Brain” is read by Doug Stone.

H. P. Lovecraft next takes us to Ireland for “The Moon-Bog,” one of his earliest eerie tales. “The Moon-Bog,” is told by Joey D’Auria.

Is “The Great God Pan” loose in the Welsh countryside? If so, what deviltry is he committing? Arthur Machen’s classic tale reveals the horrific answer. “The Great God Pan” is recounted by John Shelton.

Finally, H. P. Lovecraft returns us to our lunar theme in “What the Moon Brings,” voiced by Joey D’Auria.
