Lagniappe 57: The Statement of Randolph Carter by H.P. Lovecraft

"Everything that I can remember, I have told with perfect candor. ... if anything remains vague, it is only because of the dark cloud which has come over my mind—that cloud and the nebulous nature of the horrors which brought it upon me."

If you aren't downloading The Classic Tales podcast already then you need to begin doing so. B.J. Harrison is a superb narrator.

He doesn't leave his recordings up forever though. At some point, they get moved to his store and sold as audiobooks.

 Harrison also sells audiobooks that he's recorded aside from the podcast, though a few of these sale items have appeared on Classic Tales.

 At a price of $10 per book they are a good deal. A two-for-one sale is real value. Be sure to check it out.
