Learn the Mysteries of “THE HAUNTER OF THE DARK”!

Hark, monster mavens! You have a new creature of the night to fear–THE HAUNTER OF THE DARK!

For years, your humble author has been a rabid fan of the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s wonderful audio adaptations of the classic stories by the Gentleman from Providence. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre performs full-cast dramatizations of the horror master’s works in the style of ’30s radio shows, complete with sound effects. (Except way better sound–it’s in stereo!)

It was a bucket-list ambition of mine to work with these incredibly talented folks on one of these productions, and HPLHS masterminds Sean Branney and Andrew Leman were generous enough to allow me to collaborate with them on the script for Lovecraft’s “The Haunter of the Dark.” This story has long been a sentimental favorite of mine, for it was not only Lovecraft’s last major work, it was dedicated to my hero Robert Bloch, a Lovecraft correspondent and the celebrated author of Psycho and other great works of horror. The tale even features a hapless young writer named “Robert Blake” who falls under the sinister influence of an entity in an abandoned Providence church with an evil history. I urge everyone to check out the just-released “THE HAUNTER OF THE DARK” compact disc at the HPLHS website here:

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: HAUNTER OF THE DARK

As always, HPLHS has stuffed their CD packaging with ultra-cool free bonus keepsakes, including authentic-looking newspaper articles, letters, and other documents from the world of the story. I speak from experience: once you try one, you’ll want to collect them all!

Hope you enjoy the show! I’d love to hear what you think.
