Master horror writer H. P. Lovecraft was born 120 years ago and today his cult of Cthulhu enthusiasts has spread across the globe, much as he predicted the Great Old Ones themselves would do when the stars were right. Join ARTC as we celebrate the birth of one of our favorite and most popular writers with our bestselling adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness, adapted for audio by Brad Strickland. In this classic horror story, an old man consents to a radio interview. In that interview a number of terrible truths come out. The truth about an expedition to Antarctica in the 1920’s where everyone died horribly. The truth about an attempt to find the expedition’s mysterious killers. The truth about a desolate plateau in the heart of a frozen continent. The truth about life and intelligence on the planet Earth. And the truth about the prehistoric horror that still waits lurking—At the Mountains of Madness.

With special guest musicians The Ghosts Project.

Also included in this presentation, Time and Time Again by H. Beam Piper, adapted for audio by Ron N. Butler. Major Allan Hartley lies in the snow, dying of burns and radiation poisoning.
