anyone have any recommendations for long form horror poetry.  by long form I guess I mean where it is more narrative than say man from nantuckett.  Examples would be The Raven by Poe and The Fungi from Yuggoth sonnet cycle from HPL

and have any of the EA podcasts published anything like that?  I don't recall any, but I am mostly only following Pseudopod these days, because I just can't seem to keep up with all 3 and like horror the best of the 3 genres.

There are some recordings of Clark Ashton Smith poetry and stories over on The Eldritch Dark with varying quality levels. Some are great and some are fairly unlistenable. 

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

"The Erlking" by Goethe. Many interpretations of it in art and film. Just to read it in a dimly lit room always gave me a chill.

Thank you for the recommendations.  Erlking is freaking awesome.  there is a short animation in german worth seeking out. 

The Eldritch Dark is an awesome resource.  I thought I had book marked it once before, but that has been remedied now. 

Will look into the work of George Stirling as well.
