Fungi from Yuggoth Complete – Happy 120th Birthday H. P. Lovecraft!


Well it appears I got it done just in time for H. P. Lovecraft’s 120th. Birthday; which is also my 20th Anniversary since sitting on his grave for his 100th. Birthday.

See: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cthulhuwho1/3810075190/in/set-72157624114618268/ for that occasion!

What I’ve upload here, is truly my most personal birthday gift for H.P.L..

This complete reading of his “Fungi from Yuggoth” is something I’ve wanted to do for several years, as a tribute to the Master; and as a chance to put my voice, and my spin, on one of his most memorable works.

I’ve tried recording his prose, but that didn’t quite work for me; and then I started re-reading “Fungi from Yuggoth” again, now that I’m older, and my Indiana farm-boy voice has been tempered by many years in California; and the poetry seemed to be a fairly good fit, for my voice and temperment.

For the die-hard individuals who believe they can take 40 non-stop minutes of my voice, I’ve included a complete version in a single file; but I’ve also included separate files for every sonnet for those who want direct access to their favorite parts.

I was tempted to add background music; but I decided to let everyone have the raw reading to add their own music to it if they choose to. And I would also like to hear any copies that do get music added to them if anyone puts this files up on their sites. And please recommend any music you think I should try with my copies too.

Please share these files, and ask listeners to give any positive or negative feedback here or at willhart-at-roadrunner-com.

I’ll be adding more files here of Lovecraftian interest soon; but it will be a while before they include my voice (I’m tired of listening to myself!)

Will

ps
I’ve included a pdf copy of “Fungi from Yuggoth” in case my reading isn’t clear enough.
And I have added (23-Aug-2010) everything you need to make a paper CD case for Fungi from Yuggoth in case you burn your files to a disc. Scroll down to the bottom of this post for those files.

NOTE: If you do a normal click on the MP3 file links in this post, WordPress will play them for you.

If you’d like to download and save the files for yourself, and you are using a PC, right-click, to bring up the right-click menu and use the “Save Link As” function to save the MP3 files to your hard drive.

If you’d like to download and save the files for yourself, and you are using a Mac, I believe that would be Ctrl + Click to bring up the right click menu, and use the “Download Linked File” function to save the MP3 files to your hard drive.  I don’t own a Mac so please correct me if I am wrong!

  3. This is so wonderful, Will! I am so obsess’d with these sonnets, & you read them superbly.

  4. Matthew Carpenter says:

    Thank you for posting these. Poetry is always so much better when heard rather than read and these readings are very expressive.
