Summary

Summary

The only audio edition of At the Mountains of Madness authorized by the H. P. Lovecraft Estate!

A master of terror and nightmarish visions, H. P. Lovecraft solidified his place at the top of the horror genre with this macabre supernatural tale.

When a geologist leads an expedition to the Antarctic plateau, his aim is to find rock and plant specimens from deep within the continent. The barren landscape offers no evidence of any life-form—until they stumble upon the ruins of a lost civilization. Strange fossils of creatures unknown to man lead the team deeper, where they find carved stones dating back millions of years. But it is their discovery of the terrifying city of the Old Ones that leads them to an encounter with an untold menace.

Deliberately told and increasingly chilling, At the Mountains of Madness is a must-have for every fan of classic terror.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There is a melancholy, operatic grandeur in Lovecraft’s most passionate work, like At the Mountains of Madness; a curious elegiac poetry of unspeakable loss, of adolescent despair and an existential loneliness so pervasive that it lingers in the reader’s memory, like a dream, long after the rudiments of Lovecraftian plot have faded.” Joyce Carol Oates
“One of the greatest short novels in American literature and a key text in my own understanding of what that literature can do.” Michael Chabon, New York Times bestselling author
“Lovecraft’s fiction is one of the cornerstones of modern horror.” Clive Barker
At the Mountains of Madness ranks high among the horror stories of the English language.” Time
“Lovecraft’s At the Mountain of Madness opens with a newspaper announcement of a voyage to Antarctica…From there, the book launches into the story of Dyer’s own, earlier expedition to the Antarctic wasteland, one that culminated in murder and horror in the aforementioned mountains. Lovecraft was a master of writing about indescribable horrors whose visages violate the laws of nature in unsettling ways.” Publishers Weekly
“With its atypically epic scope and clues to unraveling the Cthulhu mythos, it’s no wonder this story inspires the utmost devotion of Lovecraft fans.” Booklist
