Houdini and the Land of the Pharoahs

I know I've mentioned this before, but I am hooked on The Classic Tales Podcast. This week's installment is Imprisoned with the Pharaohs by H.P. Lovecraft. Here is the description.
Legends abound in the land of Egypt. Legends of mysterious ancient powers that sleep beneath the man made monuments of death, known as the pyramids. When the great escape artist Harry Houdini visits the land of the Pharaohs, he is forced to perform an escape from terrors unknown to those who breathe the earthly air.
As someone who loves Amelia Peabody and Theodosia Throckmorton, I can't deny my affection for this tale. If you have some time, do give a listen. (This is Part 1 of 2 in a series.)
