You want to know what the real horror is, hey? Well, it's this—it ain't what them fish devils have done, but what they're a-going to do!

Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Shadow Over Innsmouth brings Lovecraft's tale to life as it might have been adapted for radio in the 1930s. In the style of The War of the WorldsThe Shadow and our own At the Mountains of Madness,The Dunwich Horror, and The Shadow Out of Time, Dark Adventure Radio Theatre dramatizes HPL's story with a huge cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Troy Sterling Nies (composer for The Call of Cthulhu). Discover what fate has in store for you as you delve into this cherished tale of ichthyic horrors.

In addition to the full 77 minute radio drama on CD, you'll get these carefully made props from the story to enhance your listening experience:

• A clipping from the New York Evening Graphicdescribing the government raid on Innsmouth

• A genuine matchbook from Innsmouth's historic Gilman House Hotel

• A souvenir postcard from the Newburyport Historical 

• A souvenir postcard from the Newburyport Historical Society with a picture of their prized Innsmouth tiara. The illustration was created for HPLHS by noted fantasy artist Keith Thompson

• A hand-drawn map of Innsmouth on the wrapping paper of the First National grocery chain. And yes, it really is "scratch-n-sniff". Ew.

And of course it's beautifully produced and packaged with the same deranged attention to detail that you'll find in other HPLHS products. Maybe even a little more than usual.

In a hurry? Don't want the props or a CD? Click here for the downloadable MP3 of the show. Or click here for info on our deluxe Innsmouth Combo.

FREE BONUS: Some of our friends overseas have asked if we'd provide a script to the show, so they could read along as they listen. We love the idea of people learning English the Lovecraft way. Free download coming soon!

Price $19.50
