47 - Dagon

In a break with the usual format ( because time is so short ) in todays episode we have only two items.

A reading of the story "Dagon" by the master himself H.P. Lovecraft.

This is one of Lovecraft's better known stories, and has been used for inspiration in a number of movies, including a film by the same name.

The plot of Dagon is extremely simple and yet has a powerful Cthulhu Mythos smell about it. Perhaps it's simplicity is the appeal of it, perhaps the stark mind wrenching horror portrayed here appeals to our inner selves. Perhaps it's just a good short story.

The second part of this episode is the full playing of a track by Victor Valdez. It's a wickedly moving bit of music that in my opinion is dripping with Cthulhu feel. Let me know what you think. The track comes from an album that Victor has released on the Internet Archive as a free download. Please check out Victor's site.
