To kill time during the COVID epidemic, I've been doing regular audio readings on Instagram and other places. Here is the second reading of a multi part reading of H.P. Lovecraft's FUNGI FROM YUGGOTH, which I'm breaking up into sections of two parts.
Fungi from Yuggoth is a sonnet sequence by supernatural horror writer H. P. Lovecraft that constitute a continuous first-person narrative. It concerns a person who obtains an ancient book of esoteric knowledge that allows one to travel to other planets and strange parts of the universe. The title is a term for the Mi-go, an alien race the narrator encounters, which are fungoid beings resembling crustaceans which hail from the planet Yuggoth, to which the narrator has unwittingly traveled.
Here are Parts 5 and 6. "Homecoming" and "The Lamp".
The figure tells the narrator that he was going to take him 'home', and escorts him through a seaside city and into the sunset-lit sky, taking him to a black gulf he said 'was his home when he had sight'.
VI. The Lamp
The narrator lights a lamp to see in the black gulf, and went into his tent to light it with some unknown oil, which flashed with some mysterious shapes that intrigued the narrator.
Parts 1 and 2, "The Book" and "Pursuit" were retconned from Instagram and converted into audio MP3 to post on Podbean.
Parts 3 and 4, "The Key" and "Recognition" were featured in the post previous to this one. I suggest listening to them in order.
