Besides these neat readings these guys also do a really good job of making a high production values podcast. They are continents apart and (i guess) talk via Skype but there's none of the bad voice quality and no unprofessional pause - simultaneous speaking - pause stuff that other podcasts suffer from.

Thanks for that!

Softheaded Rhinelanders will doubtless descend into gibbering madness at this production. But I, and my superior Prussian blood, do greatly appreciate this.

Fantastic! I see there are a couple of other new (to me) readings since the last time I looked. Really good stuff.

patrick54, I think that's because they record both ends individually and then edit them back together for the actual podcast.

They're just about done with working their way through the Lovecraft canon. I'm actually interested in seeing how they'll continue the podcast. It's become a staple of my drives to work on Thursdays.

I love the production values of their readings--they do top-notch work, especially with the sound design/background. Subtle, haunting, creepy. And Andrew Leman is my favorite reader of theirs...I could listen to him for hours. Oh wait, I guess I have.

They should do Robert E Howard, or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle next. There's so much great pulp from the beginning of the twentieth century.

Lord Dunsany! They should do Lord Dunsany!

While other pulp authors might not be bad, I think Lovecraft is their particular area of interest. Maybe they could be convinced to do other Cthulhu Mythos works? They're not afraid to say when a story doesn't work for them, and it might be nice to get their take on, say, August Derleth and his faults.

Working through Derleth's 1969 Tales of the Cthulhu Mythos anthology might be more interesting than working through the entirety of Derleth's stodgy output - it's a good cross section of post-Lovecraft writing, it introduces a bunch of secondary Mythos beasties and doodads that have become establishing in the RPG and elsewhere, and has some great stories by Frank Belknap Long, Robert Bloch and Colin Wilson. Plus Derleth's contributions pretty much epitomise what he was about, for better or worse.

The reverse tack I guess would be to go through Lovecraft's Supernatural Horror in Literature and cover his influences. I tried to put together some links to them here, but there's loads more, it'd keep them going for some time.

Did someone say Andrew Leman?
