Review From

Discover the finest in Science Fiction Audiobooks, Fantasy Audiobooks, and Audio Drama

Three tales from the original master of horror fiction, Edgar Allan Poe! Included in this collection are “The Raven”, “The Black Cat” and “The Cask Of Amontillado.”

Narrator Wayne June assures us that he’s done his research on this new series of definitive Edgar Allan Poe readings, and in listening you’ll absolutely have to agree. Place names and pronunciations are perfect - accents and action are exact. You can often tell when a narrator is bluffing it, surfing through the sentences blindly. That absolutely doesn’t happen here. In Poe’s most famous narrative poem The Raven, for instance, there’s nary a line that doesn’t contain an archaic word that’d flummox. June never falters. He’s got them all sussed. The Black Cat too, has never sounded better. June captures the sympathetic first person narrative and then drives home the barbarity flawlessly. Light accents make “The Cask Of Amontillado”, the most difficult of the three tales here, flow like an old vintage newly discovered. There are already many versions of these three classics available on audio, but I’d venture not a single one could come even close to match any of these three. Wayne June’s voice is perfectly matched to the melancholic material. As was the case with his superlative Lovecraft recordings, nobody else’s voice is more more morbidly macabre than is Wayne June’s. This is essential listening.

The Dark Worlds Of H.P. Lovecraft Volume 1
The Dunwich Horror
and The Call Of Cthulhu
By H.P. Lovecraft; Read by Wayne June

Review From

Discover the finest in Science Fiction Audiobooks, Fantasy Audiobooks, and Audio Drama
Here in this terrific audiobook are two tales of horror that we declare to be SFFaudio Essential.
Narrator Wayne June's voice will give you the absolute lurking creeps. His deep raspy voice is also used to good effect for all the narration, when he is infrequently called upon to do the voices of the damned he distinguishes between them well. This is the best Lovecraft adaptation to audio I've heard and more frightening than hell. For full effect a listener should turn down the lights, put on a good set of headphones, sit in a lonesome room with a view of the sea and pray that Lovecraft was just making all this stuff up. 



Review From
Audiobook Fix by Scott D. Danielson

...the finest H.P. Lovecraft I’ve heard to date. Wayne June narrates, and he was born to read these stories. Narrating Lovecraft isn’t the easiest thing—there is not a lot of dialogue—but June is able to make these stories sound both dark and conversational. His deep voice and his spot-on inflection keep the exposition interesting, which makes this collection of audiobooks a perfect way to experience Lovecraft for the first time or the nth time. ... more

The Dunwich Horror and The Call Of Cthulhu
By H.P. Lovecraft; Read by Wayne June


“Incredible… not to be missed!”
Rated 5 Stars

“Excellent H. P. Lovecraft…
This is an excellent recording of two of H.P. Lovecraft’s more well known stories… As an H. P. Lovecraft fan, I find this audiobook well worth looking into.” Rated 5 Stars

“Quintessential Horror…
If you have ever read Lovecraft before, you should buy this without hesitation. The richness and sheer eloquence of Lovecraft and the decadent bass timbre of Wayne June will bathe you in the darkest horror you have ever experienced. If all other Lovecraft books were thrown into space, these two would keep his velvet-thick world of darkness alive. If you like it, you should go for The Shadow over Innsmouth next. Enjoy with a friend if you have good bass speakers!” Rated 5 Stars

“Outstanding…
Well worth the money for these stories. The stories themselves are intense and engaging but the narration is excellent also. ” Rated 5 Stars

“More Please…
Simple statement. More Lovecraft please.” Rated 5 Stars

The Dark Worlds Of H.P. Lovecraft Volume 2
The Shadow Over Innsmouth
and Dagon 
By H. P. Lovecraft; Read by Wayne June

Review by Patton Oswalt
http://blog.myspace.com/pattonoswalt

I'M AFRAID OF WAYNE JUNE
"I don't know what he looks like, or who he is. He's only got one credit on imdb.com

But on iTunes, Wayne can be found on the audiobooks section, reading H.P. Lovecraft's stories. And he's reading stories I've read several times. Because I'm a nerd.

But Wayne sounds like a re-animated zombie being controlled by a Deep One. His voice is 3am on a winter morning on a forgotten street. It's a cold wind blowing through a shunned house on the outskirts of town. It's darkness having a nightmare and talking in its sleep in a cheap hotel -- and you've got the room next door.

And he manages to bring out details in these stories I've missed, even on re-readings. What happens to the clerk at the National Food chain store in Innsmouth when the mutant inhabitants rise from the waters for...wait, what in the f**k brought them flopping, hissing, and sliming from the black reef?

The "Innsmouth look" was the closest (and cleverest) way H.P. could express his revulsion for the mixing of the white and...well, every other race. "Attack the story like a radiant suicide", said H.P. And he did.

So far I've heard Wayne read "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" and "Dagon". The former is a long, carefully paced story that builds to a hysterical "climax", and then has a truly downbeat, horrifying coda. "Dagon", as nerds like I know, if a super-short gut-punch of a story, and serves as disturbing background for what's just happened in "Shadow". The way Wayne expresses the narrator's psyche finally unraveling in the last lines of "Dagon" -- and I heard it while riding in a New York cab -- made me squirm.
Highly recommended."

Review From Amazon.UK:
The Shadow Over Innsmouth and Dagon
By H. P. Lovecraft; Read by Wayne June

Wayne June, who reads all six available volumes, has once again done a magnificent job in bringing this audiobook to creeping, slithering life. Lovecraft's prose can sometimes be intimidatingly dense and complex but Wayne June paces the readings perfectly, allowing for all the charged emotional gravitas that these stories require.
"Shadow Over Innsmouth" is a tale of earth-shattering psychological horror set in a shunned and decaying coastal fishing town. This story could easily be destroyed by an over-the-top or uncommitted reading but Mr June convincingly conveys the narrator's growing unease and eventual blind panic as he slowly uncovers the grim secret of Innsmouth and pieces together the horrid truth of Obed Marsh's legacy.

These readings... have proved to be exceptional and seriously deserve shelf-space in the home of anyone who appreciates high quality tales of fear, apprehension and (mostly) unseen terrors.
Rated 5 Stars

SFFaudio Essential narrator Wayne June is back! His grave rumbling voice and his letter perfect pacing makes each of these three tales a shuddersome experience… Wayne June's reading of these three stories is absolutely definitive. His unaccompanied performance is utterly chilling - this series truly must be heard.


Review From Audible.com
Reviewer: Jeff, from Marion, NC, USA  
Another Masterpiece
As a lifelong Lovecraft fan, I am incredibly grateful that Audible has provided "The Dark Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft” series. I feel Wayne June’s voice and characterization lend themselves perfectly to Lovecraft’s writings in the previous volumes, and the same holds true for Volume 4… I highly recommend the series to any reader, whether they are new to Lovecraft’s work or long-time fans, and I eagerly await any future offerings.

This and the others in this series are excellent readings of H. P. Lovecraft’s classics. The reader’s voice is excellent and lends a slightly creepy air to the tales…”

“Great stuff… Quite good. Keep ‘em coming” Rated 5 Stars

"Hi Wayne,
I purchased 2 of the Lovecraft Audiobooks recently on a whim. The stories were of course pretty awesome, but I have to say, your
voicing really made the purchase worthwhile
. I've listened to both volumes twice now, and it bears mentioning that I did so a second time more because of my enjoyment of your delivery than for the stories themselves! I just wanted to write you and say great job!! As I sit in my studio and paint, your eerie voice keeps me just close enough to the edge to not want to go to bed quite yet. :-)

Thanks for the chills,
Chris"

"Mr June,
I just wanted to let you know how amazing I find your work, I purchased the entire selection of HP Lovecraft books you narrated... I listen to them at least once a month. Your narration gives a depth and character to the stories I never experienced reading them on the page. Thank you for doing such a fantastic job on these sessions and allowing me to experience one of my favorite writers in a whole new visceral way. I am a sculptor in the film effects industry and often we will be sculpting and painting monsters at work while your audiobooks set the mood!
Cheers,
Scott"
