New from ye H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society!

With audacious originality and absolute genius, The H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society  has given us a new audio cd in their Dark Adventure Radio Theatre  series. Inspir'd by H. P. Lovecraft's classic tale, "The Call of Cthulhu", Sean Branney has created an outstanding original story and audio script, which is well-served by a cast of fifteen players. Sean himself portrays Inspector John Raymond Legrasse, a character from HPL's original tale. Now, the thing ye need to know about Sean Branney and Andrew Leman is that they are among the world's really superior Lovecraftians--by which I mean that they understand Lovecraft's art intimately and intellectually. Thus The White Tree  is authentic in every way, a product of pure Lovecraftian horror, a wondrous display of how H. P. Lovecraft's influence is still so potent in these latter-days, still relevant and still original.  The topic of Lovecraft's racism seems to be all over ye Internet these day
