The Shadow Over Innsmouth by H.P. Lovecraft

Description

Rumours abound of sinister goings-on in the ancient Massachusetts seaport of Innsmouth. The once prosperous town, which has fallen into a state of decrepitude and decay, is a stopover destination for Robert Olmstead, a young historian on a tour of the region. Despite hearing ominous tales of the town and its grotesque inhabitants, Olmstead feels compelled to explore Innsmouth. He finds the place almost deserted, except for a few inhospitable locals with strange, unblinking eyes - the so-called, Innsmouth Look. He meets the town drunk, Zadok Allen, who tells him the terrifying history of the town, about Devil Reef and mutant humanoids, sea gods, gold, and human sacrifice. The deranged ramblings of a madman? As night falls on Innsmouth, Olmstead soon has cause to wonder. The Shadow Over Innsmouth (1931) is an integral part of what has become known as H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. The novella was published in 1935, and at some 26,000 words, is one of the author's longest works. The podcast is read by Mike Bennett, author of Underwood and Flinch.

Chapter Three: The narrator manages to lure Innsmouth's nonagenarian drunkard, Zadok Allen, into conversation. At first the old man is reluctant to speak of the town's shadowed past, but as whiskey gradually loosens his tongue, he tells the terrifying tale of what lies under the sea beyond Devil Reef.…read more
