At the Mountains of Madness

Mountain of Madness?
This MP3 audiobook is a complete and unabridged reading of H.P. Lovecraft's famous story "At the Mountains of Madness".  The story is related by one of the two survivors from a polar expedition. Unlike other polar explorers who may have died from cold, starvation or simply getting lost, in this story things are somewhat different.

The survivor is desperate to prevent a new polar expedition because there are "beings" there, strange murderous beings. There are things that man should not see beyond the recently discovered mountains at the pole. Scientists listening to the story told by the survivors have assumed that the teller has gone mad because what they describe just can not be. Or can they...

The narrator relates the full story of the doomed expedition and as we listen the growing sense of curiosity we feel turns slowly to horror at the events that unfold.

This classic story first appeared as a serial in the 1936 editions of Astounding Stories magazine.  It is one of the most well known of Lovecraft's stories and a firm favourite with his fans.
