  1. Thanks to Claire, Mike, Gary and Gareth. No. 3 is up and out there. Number 4 in the works. Still looking for stories, for narrators, for poets and academics…or just people who love this stuff and want to listen. Share the wealth. Tell a friend.

  2. My pleasure, Larry!

    • C.S.E. Cooney, the only thing wrong with your poem is that is didn’t go on and on and on … for I could have listened to it forever.
      I only wish all Dark Fantasy could be half as good as yours!

    • Absolutely great story. I don’t normally listen to or read female author’s except for horror. You rock. Thanks for the story.

      • ” I don’t normally listen to or read female author’s except…” WTF??!! Do you normally avoid reading black authors too? Asians? Latinos? Oh, I have news for you — almost without any doubt, you have read and/or listened to several female authors who use male pseudonyms. And I bet you can’t identify which ones those are…

  3. For all who peek here, below the Play Bar…there is C.S.E. Cooney, herself. Say hello all.

  4. I’ll say Howdy to Cooney anytime! 😉

  5. Aloha Terror Tribe!
    Beautiful poem. I have a special warm place in my heart for child / dog bonding, and even more so for supernatural shape-shifting dog lovers and surly goth chicks guarding a graveyard.

    Is that Mike’s “real” voice or his “radio/pod cast” voice? No worries, just wondering. I love that he was mentally scarred by his 3rd grad teacher reading Poe to his class for a Halloween treat. Ah, the golden days of childhood. Love it! I remember my first reading of Poe and being amazed that a “book” could hold such terror. Dark magic in the worlds, changing my little young dreams to nightmares. Such a special time in any horror fan’s life. Thanks for sharing Mike. U rawk!

    I have a weakness for Goth girls. In the 90’s I had friends heavy into the vampire club scene in LA, and every once in a while I’d leave the seclusion of my art studio & I’d tag along to the clubs. Wow. What a scene. No matter how much black I’d wear or bootleg absinthe I’d drink I always felt out of my depth. So Black Glass by Gary McMahon felt weirdly real for me.
    Great show! Thanks for the creeps! Keep it up Mister Larry Santoro!

  6. I’d like to find out more? I’d love to find out some additional information.
