In this episode of the Westside Fairytales Horror and Lit Club, I discuss the recommendations for July 2019: John Carpenter’s 1983 horror film “The Thing,” and Jeanette Wall’s 2004 memoir, “The Glass Castle.” I also talk about some stuff I’ve been watching lately, including The Last Drive In with Joe Bob Briggs, and a somewhat tragic experience from my childhood.This episode brought to you by:Stitcher Premium (https://www.stitcher.com/premium) - Go to stitcherpremium.com and use offer code FAIRYTALES to get your first month free!Support us on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/westsidefairytales)Follow us on social media: Twitter (https://twitter.com/WSFairytales) | Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/westsidefairytales) | Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/westsidefairytales/?hl=en)  Join the Westside Fairytales Horror and Lit Club (https://www.facebook.com/groups/westsidehorrorandlitclub/)Send us an email (mailto:westsidefairytales@gmail.com)Artwork by Yui Breedlove (https://www.instagram.com/yuibreedloveart/)New season begins in October!In this episode of the Westside Fairytales Horror and Lit Club, I discuss the recommendations for July 2019: John Carpenter’s 1983 horror film “The Thing,” and Jeanette Wall’s 2004 memoir, “The Glass Castle.” I also talk about some stuff I’ve been watching lately, including The Last Drive In with Joe Bob Briggs, and a somewhat tragic experience from my childhood.This episode brought to you by:Stitcher Premium (https://www.stitcher.com/premium) - Go to stitcherpremium.com and use offer code FAIRYTALES to get your first month free!Support us on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/westsidefairytales)Follow us on social media: Twitter (https://twitter.com/WSFairytales) | Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/westsidefairytales) | Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/westsidefairytales/?hl=en)Join the Westside Fairytales Horror and Lit Club (https://www.facebook.com/groups/westsidehorrorandlitclub/)Send us an email (mailto:westsidefairytales@gmail.com)Artwork by Yui Breedlove (https://www.instagram.com/yuibreedloveart/)New season begins in October!

It’s on the Great Plains where we resume our story, the tale of a young person named Alex who is traveling across this country to the resting place of a barely known father. The hope is to find some deeper understanding of self through this visitation, but the paths ahead are riddled with pitfalls and parties of a dubious nature. Marks have been set into flesh that leave the scent of blood to linger on the wind, drawing forth a greater evil from the depths of the American Heartlands. A thing beyond reckoning, which must be faced in time.Let us remind you that today’s story is the second part of a four-part series.

The greatest lie we tell ourselves is often the most cruel.That we, standing amongst so many others just like ourselves, live lives without reason or purpose. That we are insignificant, useless, or even disposable.It’s a lie that seems to come down out of the sky, like acid rain, etching itself into anyone unlucky enough to be caught out in the storm, and disintegrating those of us who can make their home nowhere but the gutters.In this, the first part of a four part series, we join a young person, a human animal cast loose of the nest by a sudden death of one parent, and the just as unexpected madness of another. Setting out on a journey to understand a new and unfamiliar life, this child will come across demons both external and internal, and characters both familiar and unfamiliar to you dear reader.Just as our hero begins the long trek across the odd and varied lands of America, we will find ourselves crossing story after story on the way to an end that is little more than a beginning.

This man is a brilliant writer. I have binge listened since episode 1. Tyler Bell's flavour of fiction tastes heavily of Stephen King, with a slight seasoning of Lovecraft. Mr. Bell'switing and narrarating easily transports the listener into his universe. For those who choose partake, satisfaction and craving are the reward.

So ecstatic to come across Westside after a frantic search for some original horror fiction! The added soupçon of real life enmity constitutes a truly unique podcast in my book! I also ABSOLUTELY LOVE the idea of getting a new book recommendation with each episode!! Great work! 💕 More, please!
