Teenage Samantha keeps her nose in her books and her head in the clouds - in lands far beyond the borders of the small town of Faulkesville where she's grown up... Where her parents mysteriously died two years ago, and where her Uncle Ted and buddy Hank Jedsoe are about to discover the real horrors that lurk in the haunted woods on the edge of town.

"The boys arrive with the changing of the weather, ushered in by winter’s cold. Once a year, at the beginning of December, those silly boys who think coming here means they are brave. All of them so eager to test their worth on the edge of my husband’s axe."For this winter's solstice, we dramatize a sharp (ha, ha) story by Kat Howard ( http://www.kathowardbooks.com/ & @katwithsword) that subverts the Arthurian legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. What happens when the Green Knight's Wife has a chance to tell the story?Feat. Moira Driscoll, William Dufris, Stephen McLaughlin, and Thomas Campbell.

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. The themes of these journals, e.g. "The Days of Flaming Motorcycles," are both a useful counter of time and contain the truthful account of her observations of the zombie apocalypse... A mesmerizing story of pandemic and zombies by Catherynne M. Valente, NYT bestselling author of over two dozen works of fiction and poetry (including one of my personal all-time-favorites, the Orphan’s Tales). Read by Kat Moraros, a Chicago-based actor originally hailing from North Yarmouth, Maine.

"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.
Today we announced Dark Tome Season 3 - yahooo! Coming in January, 2021. Also, a re-play of a classic horror radio play, reinvented by Fred's FinalRune Productions. Three men who tend the light at a reclusive island off the coast of French Guiana see a rogue ship adrift in the Atlantic. The reason for the derelict ship soon becomes obvious – it has been overrun by hundreds of thousands of ferocious ship’s rats. The rats land on the isle and soon we are in for a claustrophobic tale of terror as the three men struggle to keep their minds from cracking under the pressure of thousands and thousands of squeaking, scratching, hungry rats. Written by George Toudouze, adapted for radio by James Poe *Part of the FinalRune/Mad Horse Old Time Radio on Location Project*

Episode 1 of the Dark Tome introduces us to Cassie, who is forced to read books to Mr. Gussy - an old crank who runs a bookshop of the strange and the weird - as penance for pulling a girl's hair out at school. Mr. Gussy has warned Cassie of a book among books - The Dark Tome - and Cassie decides to open up the cover and see what it's all about. This flings Cassie into the world of acclaimed writer Joe Hill's chilling fable, "The Devil on the Staircase," narrated by a man who walks crooked steps for a living, before discovering a door that leads him straight to hell.Full cast and crew credits, and transcript available: Episode page.We’re a proud member of the Fable and Folly network.

In Episode 2 of the Dark Tome, Cassie knows better but can't escape the temptation to return to Mr. Gussy's bookshop. She finds the old man frustrated that he can't make the magical book work. It's take someone younger - someone for whom the walls between this world and the next are a little thinner. They catch a whiff of fresh bread, and are transported to the world of Catherynne M. Valente's fable "The Bread We Eat in Dreams," where a certain personable demon named Agnes will recount the story of her ejection from hell and the little hamlet that grew up around her. The Dark Tome is produced by Fred Greenhalgh and Bill Dufris. Theme 'Febryar' by Peter Van Riet https://soundcloud.com/petervanriet | Show credits at http://thedarktome.com/

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.
