The following is the podcast description as written by its creators: /// TELL ME A STORY: THE “TRUE” LIFE OF JAKOB STANLEY is a documentary about the life of beloved 1980s children's author Jakob Stanley, whose collections of horror short stories and poems outsold every other children’s book for almost two decades. As his mainstream popularity waned, Stanley's work, now out of print, reached cult status among a community of die-hard horror fans. The reclusive Jakob Stanley seemed to have dropped off the face of the earth ... until a short two-line death announcement appeared in a small town Pennsylvania paper. ///END///
