In this episode Mr Jim Moon delves into the background of the classic weird tale The Mound. We discover how HP Lovecraft came to write it for Zealia Bishop, and dig up the local folklore and old American history that inspired it. We also explore the strange theories of hollow earths and legends of lost races, and finally discuss its literary forebears from the likes of Poe and Jules Verne.
