The latest Dark Adventure Radio Theatre release from the HP Lovecraft Historical Society has a seasonal flavour to it, giving Dickens' classic Christmas Carol a Lovecraftian twist.
This 90-minute, two-CD, full-cast anthology play presents three HP Lovecraft stories - The Festival, Pickman's Model, and Outsider - woven together with a Dickens-inspired framing device.
As well as the CDs, as ever, purchasing the play gets you a selection of the HPLS's famous prop replica documents.
A Solstice Carol comes with:
- The obituary of celebrated pulp fiction author Mason Farley from the Providence Journal
- The cover of the latest issue of Astonishing Tales, a pulp magazine featuring the story "The Panther Lady of Aquelva"
- The Winter 1921 exhibition guide for an art show at the Boston Art Club, featuring the works of Richard Upton Pickman
- A rejection letter sent to an aspiring author of weird fiction by the editors at True Terror magazine
- A page from John Dee's translation of the Necronomicon which details the Rites of the Yule with a horrid medieval illustration
