H. P. Lovecraft adaptations...
Dark Corners of the Earth: Enormous, visually spectacular computer game utilizing H. P. Lovecraft's masterful short stories as a guide, "Dark Corners" takes the player through a variety of sinister locations such a maze-like tunnels and an ominous insane asylum. Horrific monsters and dreadful events adversely affect the character's sanity, and psychological conditions like vertigo and schizophrenia are recreated through subtle manipulation of graphics and sound effects. To further involve the player in the narrative, "Dark Corners" does not feature a permanent on screen interface. To assess health, the player must look down at the character's body for injuries, and to check for ammo, players must open the revolver chamber to count the remaining rounds. A journal keeps track of evidence and clues that the character unearths during his adventure. By the end of each story, the player will have a complete account of their character's exploits and can print them out to read like a Lovecraft novel.

The Lurker in the Lobby: H.P. Lovecraft in film & television.
"Cosmic horror author H. P. Lovecraft never wanted his gothically nihilistic works adapted for the screen. Oh well! The Lurker in the Lobby munches popcorn where cultists fear to tread, with reviews of the famous, infamous and just plain obscure films and television shows that have been directly inspired by Lovecraft's work... or that want you to think they are. So draw the shutters, dig out your copy of the Necronomicon, and brush up on your sixth-dimensional hyper-geometry for the dark globe of Lovecraftian cinema is on a collision course with Earth! "
Atlantic Radio Theatre Company: Radios Dramas adapted from Lovecraft fiction.
"In its early days, the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company focused exclusively on audio drama for broadcast. In 1987, having encountered resistance to the genre in the Atlanta broadcast market, and observing the resurgence of interest in "audio books" or "books on tape", we decided to market our productions directly to the public via audio tape."
"Many of our productions can be solidly categorized as science fiction, horror or dark fantasy. We are science fiction fans, after all, and the literature of the fantastic has always found a home in the Theater of the Mind."
