What if there was a book that literally opened up doorways to other worlds?

Where would it lead, and could you handle what you found on the other side?

Cassie, a teen that's having trouble fitting in at school, is about to find out. One day, after she wraps up community service at a local hospital, she stumbles out of the basement of a spooky bookshop and into a story set on a devil's staircase in a remote Italian village.

"I gotta give you a warning: there is no truth about the Dark Tome. If you think I can tell you anything certain about it, well, turn your computer off now and knock yourself in the head for the fool you are. What makes you think we can ever understand something so old?"A special episode featuring recovered tape of the author, Wilbur Gussy, reading his controversial 1999 essay, "The Curious History of the Dark Tome," long thought to be an apocryphal part of internet history.Though its authenticity has been hotly debated in academic and online forums over the ensuing two decades, none can cast doubt how effective it was at creating a lucrative online book business for the AOL user who wrote it. The more cynical online commenters suggest that it was written as a crass commercial publicity stunt.
Caitlin no longer tracks days by the calendar - instead, it's by the theme covers of the journals she writes while she goes to work at the derelict Java Shack in Augusta, Maine.

Liber Tenebris, The Dark Tome, remains an object of great speculation and mystery within occult circles, until now. In a special crossover episode with the podcast Point Mystic, we take a look into the legacy of Prof Joe Ricci and the disappearance of some of the most important research ever conducted into supernatural doorways.Part 1 of 2
Joanna, her brother Oliver, and her dad are all trapped in the upstairs of their house, with a bear prowling downstairs. However, as her father plows deeper into a bottle of whisky, it becomes clear that sapien beasts may be the most fearsome of all... Meanwhile, the stage is set for the grand conclusion of Season 2! In the hands of the Parabellum agents, Cassie seems helpless to stop the summoning of a great evil. Can the young enchantress use what she's learned about the book to stop it?
Cassie finds herself trapped with several other women in a monstrous situation imagined by a twisted doctor in early 1910s America. This is the world of SING ME YOUR SCARS, a chilling treatise on subservience and bodies, told by Victoria, a woman torn between her desire for freedom, and her desire not to rot away.
Mr. Gussy returns, but what he finds on the other side was not what he expected. We venture to the salt-sprayed shores of New Brunswick, where time has been hard on Sammy. But the promise of three square meals and the hunt for a sea monster makes him believe there might be such a thing as second chances.
Cassie faces a choice, and who better to help her understand the importance - and power - of choices than Sudha, a Vishakanya, or poison maiden, a female assassin whose very touch is deadly? NYT-Bestselling Author Roshani Chokshi retells the death of Alexander the Great - a story that has become legend - through the perspective of a woman who has never had a Choice, a most precious thing thought only to be the domain of kings. Special thanks to Stories of Mahabharata for support casting this episode, as well as original period-appropriate music from Avi Ziv.

Cassie's transported to a Caribbean island in the near-future, where a devastating 'duppy tide' caused utter devastation… And has led to a new, perverse form of tourism. But the tourists are in for more than they bargained for when they learned of the mutated fauna in this home that gave birth to zombis.
Kim and Cassie hide away at a rich family's home in a neighborhood on the outskirts of town. But, Kim isn't letting Cassie go without learning some of her secrets… And what Cassie reveals, may be as much as Kim can handle. In the world of BIRDS OF AZALEA STREET, a monster lurks behind closed doors... A monster tolerated by the sweet neighbors, who will turn a blind eye to monstrosity if it'll help keep property values in check.
Cassie's saved by a friend, but learns that her world has changed more than she could have imagined while she's been gone. Worlds gone wrong turns out to be a theme, when she goes on her next trip, to the world of THE BACCHAE. In a world where environmental destruction has poisoned life to a breaking point, what consequence will fall on those who were implicit in its demise?
"I'm not a ghost!" -- "All ghosts say that." In the return of the acclaimed dimension-jumping anthology fiction podcast, we find Cassie flung to a world where body modifications are routine and one daughter of a Chinese immigrant is prepared to make an unbelievable sacrifice to save her own skin. This is the world of Alyssa Wong's NATURAL SKIN, a harrowing tale of distorted ideas of beauty in a near-future dystopian Toronto, Canada.

Hey Dark Tome I'd say you have a decision to make. Either your ego started leading you around or you haven't hitched ur britches up bc you have an attitude. Get back to what you know you can give, and in return, ..well you're mature enough? to figure it out.
