Pickman’s Model is H.P. Lovecraft’s tale of a man who discovers a most troubling secret in an artist’s studio– an artist whose remarkable talent is matched only by the horror of the gruesome scenes he renders so vividly on canvas.

A blog dedicated to bringing reviews, news and stories on audiobooks. I used to read 3-4 books a week, mostly due to the fact that I worked the 11-7 shift, and used reading as a way to keep my mind focused and awake. Recently, though, due to a change in my work situation, my consumption of books dropped.
With that change came a change from reading to listening to books. Audio books opened a whole new frontier is entertainment. The right book with the right narrator can create a vivid and exciting literary experience.
As to what to expect… I mostly enjoy science fiction, fantasy and mysteries, so expect a lot of that. Contact me with recommendations or requests for reviews at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note I typically listen to and review fiction books, particularly science fiction, horror, fantasy, suspense, thrillers and mysteries.
