Yes, a rock opera adaptation of Dreams in the Witch House. Our very own Mike Dalager has assembled an amazing international team of musicians, singers and artists to bring it to you as a double vinyl LP, CD, and digital download.

The awesome 180-gram violet vinyl album is a thing of collectible beauty, and the music itself has been described as "moving," "an amazing adaptation," "powerful," and "absolutely captivating."

The project is so massive it requires its own website, full of video interviews, musical samples, and more details.

Thanks to Lifetime Member Sterling J. Harris for sharing his scholarly paper "I Am Providence: Narratives of Hope and Power in the Work of H. P. Lovecraft," now available for download to our members in the Study of the Members' Sanctum!

The Soothing Sound of Innsmouth
The vinyl is pressed! The latest HPLHS recording is now available for download, on CD or as a deluxe vinyl LP combo.
