THE COLOUR OUT OF SPACE Audio Book
“West of Arkham the hills rise wild, and there are valleys with deep woods that no axe has ever cut.” So begins this legendary sci-fi/horror tale by H.P. Lovecraft about a meteorite that crashes in the fictional New England town of Arkham and proceeds to deform all vegetation on “the blasted heath” while driving its inhabitants slowly and homicidally insane. Read by award-winning filmmaker Richard Stanley – whose 2019 movie adaptation starring Nicolas Cage was called “a trippy rainbow of the gory and grotesque” (Daily Mirror) – The Colour Out Of Space remains one of the most startling and significant works in modern horror history.
