    Howard Phillips Lovecraft, better known as H.P. Lovecraft, was an American author of horror, fantasy, poetry and science fiction, especially the subgenre known as weird fiction and many feel he is the acknowledged master of creepy, weird and unsettling stories. These are seven stories by Lovecraft that literally span his career; some being written when he was barely a teenager and one (The Shunned House) only published after he had died. Each story is unique and strange in it's own way but all of them come from the same mind that gave us the Cult of Cthulhu and other wonderful tales that generations now have enjoyed for their strangeness that resonates with our own inner fears. Some of these stories explore the depths of the human mind others the depths of human degradation and creepiness.Stories included:- The Beast in the Cave- The White Ship- Nyarlathotep- The Alchemist- Dagon- The Tomb

    With two proposals in one day—which offer will Miss Elizabeth Bennet choose? Marriage to the first of the two men would subject her to misery of the acutest kind. Marriage to the other would be merely for the sake of avoiding a scandal. Either would serve the interests of Elizabeth's family, but what of her own wishes? 
    Will Elizabeth reject both gentlemen's offers of marriage, especially when one of them is Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy? Will she dare to refuse such a man? 
    What listeners have said: 
    "Pearl Hewitt has a wonderful speaking voice, and it fits this type of novel naturally. She's the perfect narrator for the time period. I've listened to this book twice since I purchased it and enjoyed it more each time!" 
    "I like alternative stories that stay true to the characters, wit and restraint of the original. I needed to enjoy the goodness in P&P without a lot of angst and this was just right." 
    "If you love Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer then you will love love love this novel. The story was unique and the characters were true to the original in that their main characteristics were unchanged but we also got to see a new part of their personality and manners." 
    "I always love how Dixon writes Darcy’s perspective. As the title says. (Sigh) Such a MAN. His inner monologues are filled with desire and anticipation. The engagement scenes and Elizabeth’s perspective are worth a laugh out loud. I have listened to several Dixon books now and am impressed with Pearl Hewitt's range of voices keeping all character voices consistent book to book." 
    "Pam Dixon once again enchants her readers and listeners into a state of excitement and fear for our favourite couple! But of course leaves us with a happy ending and a longing for more!"
