Description

The unseen creature whose ravenous fangs dog your every step as your footfalls echo down the midnight alleyway.

 —

A long, icy shadow looming over you, making the hairs on your neck rise and your breath turn to ragged puffs of mist.

Unearthly howls that pierce the night, pulling you from the comfort of sleep with feverish, heart-pounding dread.

 —

What an awesome story, great author, terrific reading. This felt like an audio book of a colaberation of Stephen King and Chuck Palahinuk, two of my favorite writers. Martin Mundt, I am going to seek your stories!!!

Second main story upset me. It was about abuse and rape. I lived through that. Do not consider that a story for enjoyment.

I adore this story. I love how this messed up world exists because of the blinding desire to be "successful". Martin has a very interesting voice and his delivery is dry and delightful. <3

I enjoy the podcast but HATE that shrill theme music. I have to mute it. Really spoils the whole thing. Super annoying, and not fitting.
