ars libertatis

Here are some of the audiobooks, and films which I like to suggest to family, friends and the wider world, with very brief explanations why I recommend them.

See also notes & reviews.



The Dark Worlds of H.P. Lovecraft, Volumes 1-6, short stories and novellas written by H.P. Lovecraft, read by Wayne June: June’s deep and dark voice is perfectly suited for gothic horror and creates a satisfactorily cosmicist atmosphere.

The King in Yellow, written by Robert W. Chambers, mostly read by Stefan Rudnicki, with a few parts (intros and interludes) by Gabrielle de Cuir: Difficult to explain, but Rudnicki’s narration sounds like a nineteenth-century fin-de-siècle voice. Unfortunately Rudnicki’s French pronunciation is not so good but at least there’s only a little bit of French in this book.


Macbeth (2015), directed by Justin Kurzel: It’s a great movie in many respects but I recommend it especially because of its mythologically beautiful visual style.
