    Catching up on all the stores loving it! The tall beavers in “The Street” were beaver hats ?

  • Michael Carnright on

    Enjoying catching up on this podcast. Concerning “The Street” the street collapsing on the bad guys reminds me of the poem “The One Hoss Shay” By Oliver Wendell Holmes. But Lovecraft makes much better use of this 😀

    I got a two week prescreening to Aquaman for being an Amazon prime member so got to see a call out to our favorite author. In the beginning of the movie they’ll do a close up on a snow globe on top of books. The book on top made me giddy! And the story they chose fit perfectly to the premise of the movie. And there’s also a creature. Just wanted you to know. Have fun it’s a cheesy fun movie!!!!

    Hello C&C, will you guys be performing at the 2019 NecronomiCon in Providence?
    Just saw a Facebook post about tickets gong on sale on January 25.

    Hi chris and Chad. I really enjoy your podcast and the readings are great. I loved the bits that Andrew Leman read for the episodes on the Dunwitch Horror. Its one of my favorite lovecraft stories and it would be fantastic to hear a full reasing of it. Is that something that you have considered doing? Keep up the work! /Nils in Sweden

  • John W on

    If you haven’t already started making this episode yet there is a complete reading of:
    In Amundsen’s Tent by John Martin Leahy narrated by Edward E. French
    available over on YouTube

    He seems like a good guy, with some great readings of pulp, horror, mystery, science fiction and classic stories. I think the existing recording would make for great clips, but I bet he’d would be up for working with you guys on some originals.

    He’s covered plenty of Lovecraft and he’s working in the film industry in makeup.

    Hi guys, big fan of your podcast. How come it’s not available via Spotify though? 🙁

  • hppodcraft on

    Recent changes to wordpress have messed up our feed. We’re looking into it!

  • Penny on

    Hello Gents – I’ve recently found your podcast and I’m enjoying it. I’m looking into the older releases to get some more info on Lovecraft himself. However, I have a question I hoped you could help me with. Specifically, I’m not sure if I can identify “Lovecraftian” horror – per se. I recently read The Monstrumologist (Rick Yancey 2009) and it seemed like the kind of fiction Lovecraft would write. However, it didn’t feel quite right. Is this more weird fiction than Lovecraftian horror? I loved the Gothic monster edge, but it didn’t have the cosmic element tied to it. I’m I being a Lovecraft snob?

    Just a quick line, I can’t seem to find you guys on the Podcast Addict app for some reason.

    I was surprised when my pod catcher got an adult cast from The Weird Tales Podcast—-“One Small, Valuable Thing, by Chad Fifer

    Hey Guys,

    We’re a group of filmmakers in Denver who are trying to expand our fan base and try to do adaptions of HPL stories or our own set within his universe. We’re trying to expand our fan base through grass roots and would ultimately like to build a platform where fans could submit ideas and we could in cooperate them into films.

    I was curious if it’d be possible for you guys to give us a shout out on social media just to draw attention to our channel? We’re growing and just would like a little help from bigger fish in the pond.

    We’re hoping to build our YT platform ( as a portfolio for a future pitch at a feature funding.

    We have some stickers of our brand (on Instagram we are “creepy_tv_channel” and if you’d like a few, we’d love to send some to you guys.

    If not, no worries!

    Hey guys. As an H. P. Lovecraft fan, I have been listening to you from day one. I am a writer who is making way in the comic book industry who would like to make a serious Lovecraft series set in the 1950s. I have a phenomenal artist from Argentina who totally gets Lovecraftian horror and is ready to jump into making, in my opinion, the first true comic series based on Lovecraft’s more non-religious views.. As two people who also get the Lovecraft thing, I would love to talk to you about getting something going to bring Howard’s true vision to life. You can see other examples of my work on my site

  • Gilles Poitras on

    Japanese literature inspired by Lovecraft which may interest you.

    I am another hobby author and former Call of Cthulhu gamemaster, who wrote some minor stuff. One file is for sale, the second is cost-free for all!

    I am only in pre-production of turning my stories and narrations into podcasts, but such may follow. Usually I just can’t pay their fees. 😉

    My regards

    I collaborate in a crowdfunding project with lovecraft themes.

    In a short time the project will be available in the kickstarter platform, besides being already available in verkami, if you are interested I leave you a link to the author’s project and a promotional video.

    I hope you like it a lot and collaborate in the dissemination of the project, we would greatly appreciate it.

    All help is welcome, especially we seek to promote the project among friends and get the best word of mouth possible.

    Hi gents, back-handed compliment that it may be, I’m planning on shoplifting your model and perverting it to the discussion of classic erotica. I’ve bagged my url and am easily months away from actually doing anything, but wanted to ask you – if you don’t mind – what your recommendations would be for starter equipment – how do you do the presenters-in-separate-places thing for example?



  • Andre Michael Pietroschek on

    Last night I had some short, appreciated mailing with Julie Hoverson, and I am really still a fan of this:

    It is a legally cost-free audiodrama (not mere audiobook) of the Dunwich Horror in 4 parts (bit more than 2 hours playtime at regular speed). Enjoy!

  • Oswen on

    I love your podcast so much it’s amazing. You should do a review of “I have no mouth and I must scream”

  • Mark on

    Hey C+C=great podcast,

    You’re lack of coverage of “The Insanity of Jones” is and egregious injustice that will be rectified in another lifetime.

    Your peon from another eon,

  • Rick on

    Before leaving HPL completely you should do an episode on “Sweet Ermengarde”. It’d be hilarious.

    Is there a physical mail address? PO box or something? I’ve come across a physical artifact that you might find inspiring (it’s not alive, or likely to cause debilitating madness, just printed matter.)

    Have you read any of the Joe Ledger books by Jonathan Maberry? The book Kill Switch has a lot of Lovecraft in it.

    Have you heard of The Broken Hours by Jacqueline Baker? Published a few years ago, about a down-on-his-luck man takes a job as a secretary to a certain reclusive horror writer in 1936 Providence. Creepy and atmospheric. Highly recommended. Cheers!

  • Tim McGregor on

    Forgot to mention how much I like the podcast. You two are very charming hosts!

  • Vince Coleman on

    I just listened to your awesome episode on weird Chinese tales. I know absolutely nothing about Chinese monster culture, but I used to read a lot about old Japanese monsters, and the vignette format really struck me as similar. There are so many accounts of random weird monsters and stuff in old Japanese texts. My favorite one is the woman who comes into a building, stares at someone, and then the guy takes ill and dies later. It feels to me that a lot of modern Japanese horror cinema is based on those little snippets. I wonder if this love for snippets and vignettes was something they got from China, or if it is just a thing both Japan and China share. Anyway, loved your episode on it!!! Hilarious, entertaining, and informative as usual.

  • Sharon Sadlowski on

    So happy to have found your podcast. Huge fan of Lovecraft since high school, and I do not meet like-minded people IRL. I’d love for a guy to smooth talk me with Lovecraft. You guys are very listenable. Looking forward to bingeing.

  • J. Alton Henry on

    I am a newer listener to the podcast and I’m up to episode 106 ep. 3 for shadow of time. I have really enjoyed the show thus far, even listening to more recent non HPL shows. Keep up the great work.

  • Chris Eaton on

    Hi Guys! Have you done “The Alchemist”? I cant find that one.

  • Phoef Sutton on

    Hey! I’m a long-time listener, infrequent poster. I wanted to add a belated note on your DUNWICH HORROR podcast. The best adaptation I’ve ever experienced of it is a 1945 radio adaptation for the series SUSPENSE, starring, of all people, Ronald Coleman. Give it a listen. It fully captures the eldritch horror!
    Also, you may not know that the 1960s daytime soap opera DARK SHADOWS did the story too. The show was known for riffing on classic horror — they did DRACULA, of course, but also FRANKENSTEIN, THE TURN OF THE SCREW (at least twice) and THE WOLF MAN — they also did a fairly faithful version of DUNWICH. See the article included.
    I’m a huge fan. Keep up the good work!

  • Otto Granath on

    Hey guys! Love the podcast! You guys are so hilarious and insightful!
    I wanted to recommend some classic weird-esque stuff from my home country in Sweden! Those books are Thy Soul Shall Bear Witness! by Selma Lagerlöf and her short story collection The Löwensköld Ring!
    Cheers and keep up the good work!

  • Andrew on

    First heard of Lovecraft from my cousin who introduced me to Eldritch Horror the board game. Loved the monsters and overall creepyness. Picked up Arkham Horror lcg and then discovered the podcast. Chad and Chris added depth and got me reading Lovecraft’s stories. Still listen to the show and love it.

  • Zachar Laskewicz on

    Hi Guys !

    I left a comment about a recent film I made based on an adaptation of a story by Lovecraft. I posted information on your Facebook profile but as a bot invaded my old profile and started posting a constant stream of ads I’m not sure if you ever saw it.

    I was stimulated to finally make a film adaption of a piece I composed in 1990 by listening to your podcast which I’ve been enjoying for awhile now. I’m glad you’re still making it.

    Although I live in Belgium it was recorded in Perth, Western Australia. I discovered Lovecraft after listening to a recording of “Haunter of the Dark” which begins with the awesome Nemesis quotation I used in the film. To a young child the story which if read with conviction is pretty frightening and it made an enormous impression on me. To this day I remember the closing lines which were screamed in absolute horror on the recording and which remained burned into my subconscious: “The three-lobed burning eye”. I was rather surprised when I recently discovered that this was exactly how the story ends.

    I’ve also included background information on my Facebook and YouTube postings which links similarly to my website.

    This second cut of the film includes a lot more tentacles.

    Here’s the link to the YouTube film:

    Thanks again for your great podcast.

  • Zachar Laskewicz on

    … and on my (new) Facebook profile which there are also three Lovecraftian fragments each based on a face-mask I designed which I called “Dreadful Little Nightmares”. I say this because a fourth tale called “SQUID PRO QUO” is influenced both by the impeachment trial which was taking place at the time and your podcast episode on the Horror at Martin’s Beach That’s not bad considering I’ve never actually read the original story. I loved the idea of the vengeful malevolent mother. Because the creative process was so interesting I’m going to publish a reflection on the influences behind creating a new work like this and i’m going to reference your podcast episode specifically.

    On an aside when I mentioned Perth, WA above I actually wanted to say that after hearing the recording of Lovecraft, I did my very best to find collections of Lovecraft stories. In the eighties in Perth it was harder than you’d think. The game had still not become popular and even if I went to science fiction stores people only knew of him anecdotally. At the time when I later discovered the game I was suprised to discover that Perth, WA was on the Lovecraft map and I felt sort of proud. In retrospect, I realise that he would have chosen a city like this because at the time it was virtually unknown and extremely remote (where a lot of darkies could live). I’d like to note here that Lovecraft could have potentially loved it here: until the late fifties Australian Aboriginals (the original inhabitants of the Swan River area) were not allowed to enter the capital at all after dark without a permit. Phenomenal but true.

    I’m loving the DORIAN GRAY podcast. Have you seen the 1945 movie? It has its problems, but the painting and George Sanders as Lord Henry were perfect. Sanders practically WAS Lord Henry.

  • Phoef Sutton on

    The 1945 film of PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY features two marvelous paintings, showing the progression of Dorian Gray. The film is in black and white, but the shots of the paintings are in glorious color. A marvelous effect.

    The first picture of Dorian Gray was painted by Henrique Medina – it is called PORTRAIT OF HURD HATFIELD OF DORIAN GRAY. In 2015 it was sold for $149,000 at Christie’s New York. It is believed to be a private collection. Possibly in an attic somewhere…

    The second painting – the hideous one — is called PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY and was painted by “well known painter of macabre,” Ivan Le Lorraine Albright. It is now at the Art Institute of Chicago.

  • Jim Barrett on

    I don’t know if you’re aware, but Robert Lloyd Parry has been releasing a series of readings of stories by M.R. James (Parry’s specialty), Lovecraft, Wells, Machen et al. on his YouTube channel, Nunkie Films.

  • Mr. G on

    I have a few Lovecraft books around the house and just read the the cult of cthulhu compendium and wanted to find a podcast to help me digest it, and here you two are! From your explanation of Dagon, Cthulhu, Dunwich Horror, Whisperer and Haunter in the dark I found myself pulled to read as much Lovecraft as possible. I’ve since read Colour out of space, Innsmouth, and Rats In The Walls. All this in less than a month. I just finished Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath and my goodness what a story. I’m looking to read Mountain of Madness next.

    All this because I want to listen to what you have recorded. Please keep recording; I loved your review of Masque of the Red Death. (By the way, this is def playing out here in late 2020). Thanks guys.

    If you had new merch I might purchase something. Thanks.

  • Matteo Masiello on

    I enjoy you guys talking about Turn of the Screw, but I find this to be one of the worst “ghost” stories ever written and don’t understand the appeal. Same goes for all of the film and tv adaptions I have mistakenly chosen to watch. I don’t find it to be uncomfortable, uneasy, weird, or scary. As you pointed out, the style is the story. In my opinion, a writer should to have their own style, of course, but the reader should not be distracted by the style. There is virtually no plot in the story, which makes it boring. Is it intelligently written? Of course as the proof is your in depth analysis. But therein lies the problem for me. There is too much intellectualism involved in understanding the characters, who still remote superficial to me. It is so analytically structured that, to me, there is no room left for dread.

    You had know idea how apropos that prediction “this just like what Trump did this week” would be!

  • Benjamin Kavanagh on

    In the story “The Ghosts of the Future” WJ Clinton, the protagonist has visions of large animals moving jerkily and playing strange music while strobing lights change colour and “children play their box games”. Is WJ Clinton saying the character is having a vision of Chuck E Cheese? There’s also a chest full of coins the protagonis doesn’t recognize. Could those be game tokens? Has this been pointed out before? I’m new to the podcast, but I’ve been listening frequently for the past year! Great stuff, guys!

  • Jesse Holman on

    M. R. James, casting the runes would be an excellent weird story to cover. He was considered one of best English ghost writers of all time. This story is about a misanthropic alchemists whose books are rejected and how he exacts his revenge

  • Andrew Brown on

    Please, please review Shottle Bop by Theodore Sturgeon. I don’t see it in the older episodes (catching up via Patreon). It’s a great story and SOOOO influential.

  • David Lie on

    Thanks for your podcast. Joined up on Patreon for a bit to thank you for the core Lovecraft in the first 120 eps. Found most of it in free audio form around the net. Discovered you by accident. I’m interested to know if he ever visited his mother after her breakdown. Was his imagine fired only by Poe etc. or did he witness the illness of others first hand in some hospital visit? And where was it? It is hard for the general public to truly envision “madness” without firsthand experience. You may already know that many who had neurosyphilis were in asylum care at the time. Perhaps 500 000 people in the US had syphilis before the 1940s.MAny of these would have had grandiose and paranoid delusions and hallucinations as part of their illness.

    Lovecraft that poor young man. Raised with what sounds like “you come from a proud family etc.” and having what would have been so shameful at the time – two parents who had psychiatric care. . I don;t know if you ever cover him again biographically after Ep 120. I am struck by the less-celebrated “Celephais” – a sad elegaic wish-fulfillment for one convinced of his noble lineage who will reach his true inheritance only in death or sleep. Thanks guys and alll the best going forward! Will have to buy the biography.
