Lovecraftian horror with a side of grits

Cthulhu in the Deep South is a gripping read that had me 6 chapters in before I knew it! The episodes balance intense, paced storytelling with great attention to detail, helping build an immersive world that the reader helps you fall into. The Lovecraftian mythos is woven seamlessly into the old American south, creating a setting of constant low urgency that carries you along with the tide. If you are looking for a fast paced episodic thriller, Cthulhu in the Deep South is the answer you are looking for. I highly recommend giving it a listen, 5/5!

Love this approach

Not only do I love the subject matter and the writing, but I'd also love to see more audiobooks done this way!

Another Side of the Mythos

I’m so glad I found this podcast. I love that we get another side of the Cthulhu mythos that tackles the problematic nature of Lovecraft with the same eerie storytelling.
