Yes, I’m doing this reading to help promote the Guillermo del Toro, James Cameron, Universal Studios, 3D movie of, “At the Mountains of Madness.”
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting all twelve chapters of H. P. Lovecraft’s, “At the Mountains of Madness,” one chapter at a time, to stretch out the fun; and to give me time to clean each chapter up a bit (and correct the bloopers also) before they are posted here.
I’m also taking a little time between each posting to allow for any feedback, to see if there is an interest in my posting the entire reading.
I have already recorded the first five chapters, but I’ll then work on each of the final seven chapters one-at-a-time.
And now, Chapter One:

If you’d like to download and save the file 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 file to your hard drive. I don’t own a Mac so please correct me if I am wrong!
I researched the name, “Pabodie”, for pronunciation; and once I found it was a variant of “Peabody,” and “Paybody,” it was easy to settle on, “Pay-Body” as the choice for my reading. And, there is one point in the text where the sources disagreed on whether the word, “Probably,” or the word, “Probable” should be used; and I had to believe that William Dyer, the man telling his story, would not have been guessing with “Probably,” and would have meant, “Probable” instead. So that was my choice for this reading too.
Please let me know if this reading is to your liking by way of comments.
And please tell me if you do want more of this tale sooner, rather than later.
Chapter Two is coming soon!
