After a meteorite strikes near a farmhouse outside of Arkham, strange things begin to happen. While the scientifically minded speak of discovering a new element, locals sense something more sinister is in the air. H.P. Lovecraft, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. Thank you to all of those of you who are Classic Tales Podcast financial supporters. We couldn’t do this without you. For me, H.P. Lovecraft’s writing is like an indulgent dessert – it needs to be savored, and you need a clean palate in order to truly enjoy it. This is why I was drawn to him after such a lengthy run of Tarzan’s adventures. His writing, when taken in periodic doses, can elevate the intellect, while chills run down your neck. He pioneered the genre of cosmic horror, dealing with alien beings that do not follow our notion of physics, thus simultaneously lending them greater probability while making them more unfamiliar and terrifying.
