After a meteorite strikes near a farmhouse outside of Arkham, strange things begin to happen. While the scientifically minded speak of discovering a new element, locals sense something more sinister is in the air. H.P. Lovecraft, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

The Classic Tales Podcast is listener supported. I’ve gone through and created many more options to support the podcast, so if you can swing more on the monthly side, or want to give us a single donation, you can find an abundance of options at www.classictalesaudiobooks.com. Each donation comes with a monthly “thank-you” code.

This week, we are taking a departure from our murder mystery, and going to another part of New England – Arkham, Massachusetts. You have probably noticed that there is a bit of a black hole with some of the previous episodes of The Classic Tales Podcast. Though we are currently in the middle of season twelve, only seasons 1-4 have been released as complete collections. Why is this? Well, because to format the new audio, correctly label the files, write and record new opening and closing credits is not at the very, very top of my list. It’s there, just not at the top. Got to put out too many fires first.

And so, we are opening the archives and releasing a story that was originally released in July 2016 as a two-part episode. I’ve combined both of the parts into one for today’s episode. This story was actually one of Lovecraft’s own favorites. I hope you enjoy it. We’ll resume the mystery of the circular staircase next week.

And now, The Colour Out of Space, by H.P. Lovecraft.
