Spoken Arts label, Cadabra Records, presents a live reading from their ongoing series in homage to H. P. LOVECRAFTThe Lurking Fear.

Marking the first time in history that The Lurking Fear has been read for vinyl, the new release features a dynamic reading by professional actor Andrew Leman, a co-founder of the H. P. LOVECRAFT Historical Society. Dark ambient/industrial outfit, Theologian, backs up Leman’s conveyance of the awesome story, supplying an appropriately macabre and unsettling score. Copies of the limited-edition vinyl album will be available.

Andrew Leman is one of the founding members of the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society, and has produced a number of literary, film, theatrical, music, prop and gaming projects there over the decades with his longtime friend and collaborator Sean Branney. He has written and produced more than 20 live-action Lovecraftian role-playing games. He wrote and directed the first HPLHS film, "The Testimony of Randolph Carter", directed "The Call of Cthulhu", and co-wrote and co-produced The Whisperer in Darkness. He co-wrote, produced, and appears in the "Dark Adventure Radio Theatre" series of Lovecraft adaptations. He co-created the HPLHS musical sensations "A Shoggoth on the Roof", two albums of Lovecraftian holiday music, "A Very Scary Solstice" and "An Even Scarier Solstice", "Ogham Waite: Live at the Gilman House", and "The Curious Sea Shanties of Innsmouth, Mass". Leman earned his MFA in acting from the University of Illinois, and has been seen on professional stages in Chicago and Los Angeles. He greatly enjoys reading for The H. P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast and being an occasional guest host. When not pursuing any of these many other occupations, Leman is a graphic and type designer, and his typographical work has been seen in books and on movie screens, Trader Joe’s products, and billboards nationwide.
