Named for the famous poet, Caedmon Records specialized in spoken word releases for decades. The company is best known to horror fans both for their classic albums featuring Vincent Price and for releasing some of the first commercially available audio versions of stories by H.P. Lovecraft.

Chilling Ghost Stories

The story behind Chilling Ghost Stories is quite interesting. It begins in the early 70’s, when cousins Barbara Freeman and Connie Regan decided to quit their jobs and make a living from telling stories after receiving much acclaim while telling stories to audiences while working at the same library. Although there was some struggling at …

Chuck Palahniuk, DAMNED

“When you’re descended from a thousand years of suffering, you tend to see the absurd humor in even the grimmest situations.” Perhaps this quote from a Fangoria interview with author Chuck Palahniuk should preface every novel of his, as a way to explain what the reader is about to discover. One of the things I …

DONATE HERE Kickstarter has become the number one “crowd-funding” sites out there, mainly due to high profile people using the service.  I’ve talked about it in the past, both with Transylvania-TV’s Halloween Special and mentioning the service in a write up about the remake/prequel/sequel of the 2006 movie Behind the Mask (aka Before The Mask). …

Great Classic Suspense

Yellow journalism? Hardly!

Although the name might make one think of a collection of episodes from the famous old time radio series, this is actually a reissue of a Tangled Web Audio release featuring Geraint Wyn Davies narrating classic short stories (although AudioGo has released a collection of episodes from the British version of Suspense). As was the …

Sunday Reading: THE HELMET OF HORROR by Victor Pelevin

Inadvertently, I expanded my horizons when I bought a copy of Victor Pelevin’s The Helmet of Horror, which was due to a few superficial flaws in the consumer culture embedded in both myself and the used bookstore where I purchased the copy. First off, I probably wouldn’t have bought it, or found it at all, …

Great Classic Horror


While I have reviewed many audio dramas from AudioGo in the past, this is the first time I’ve ever reviewed a audiobook. Sure, I’ve reviewed audio drama/audiobook hybrids before, but this is new territory for me. And you know what? I liked it. I still prefer audio dramas, but this was a fun change of …

How to Survive a Horror Movie

Given the sheer amount of humorous horror–related handbooks and survival guides, it’s all too easy to forget the idea that started it all: horror movie survival in general. There must have been something in the air during the mid-to-late nineties. “How to survive a horror movie” emails were being forwarded left and right and 1996’s …

The Return Man (plus Contest)

Zombie, Ohio by  Scott Kenemore was the first real zombie novel I read. Eventually, I will have to read the Max Brooks contributions to the genre, especially with the movie of World War Z coming out.  I think with the Zombie Saturation Horizon reaching critical levels, my aversion of all things Z was more of a …

ARCANE Magazine – A Review

ARCANE Magazine Madness would be a primary motivation for anyone looking to involve him or herself in the current day magazine industry, with subscriptions dying and print costs rising. Madness, I might then assume, guides the hand that created ARCANE, a new magazine that identifies itself as “penny dreadfuls for the 21st Century.”  However, …
