Fear For Your Ears VIII

The Owl Field is a company specializing in binaural audio (3D sound) and their free story “Overnight” makes things even more immersive by making you the star! The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets have created a radio play which ties into their Lovecraftian science fiction RPG Spaceship Zero and I highly recommend it. The website …

Sudden Chillers

One of my most promising new sources of audio horror is Eric D. Cota’s Sudden Chillers. In his role as “The Chiller,” he both knows how to write and tell great original horror fiction. He also knows the importance of mood and instructs his listeners to turn down the lights and turn up the volume …

H.P. Lovecraft’s The Dunwich Horror

Strange things are afoot in Dunwich, Massachusetts. The daughter of a local eccentric has given birth to a goatish-looking child named Wilbur who ages at a rapid rate. How rapid? He can walk and talk at only eleven months old and can pass for a teenager when he is four and a half! If this …

Yet More Fear For Your Ears

If you’re searching for fresh and original horror stories, look no further than Sudden Chillers. Although I think they have a creepypasta vibe, these readings should also appeal to fans of traditional horror stories as well. You can also find free samples of his work on the Sudden Chillers YouTube account. Speaking of creepypasta, Midnight …

Epic Vale

(or, how I tried to incorporate the NYCC and Welcome To Night Vale into a pun-title for this post.) One of the more odd yearly October traditions in a city full of celebratory nonsense, the New York City Comic Con kicks off tonight or tomorrow or Friday, depending on what passes you bought. I went last year …

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 …

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency

It all started with a missing cat. Wait, scratch that, it actually started long before humanity came into existence. But Dirk Gently’s case was to find a missing cat. Given his assertion of the interconnectedness of all things, he’s definitely the best man to see how a ghost, aliens, time travel and Samuel Taylor Coleridge …

The Scarifyers: The Nazad Conspiracy

It was supposed to have been a peaceful Christmas eve spent reading ghost stories to his students. That is, until a terrified Russian man arrived at Professor Dunning’s to seek shelter. That’s when things took a turn for the bizarre when some sort of invisible being arrived and pushed the man out the window. Things …

What's Bigfoot doing in a graveyard?

Readers of the 2012 Halloween countdown might remember how I briefly touched on Fangoria’s Dreadtime Stories last month in my most recent installment of “Fear For Your Ears.” Said series is the result of Fangoria teaming up with the man behind The Twilight Zone radio series in 2011.
