  1. Thanks for fixing promptly Al.
    Been listening since Episode 1. Prefer this to Pseudopod, but Nightmare Magazine gives you a good run for your money. Hope you get a Parsec soon. It would be well deserved.

  2. Thank you, Andrew. Greatly appreciated. The Parsecs do make you jump through quite a few hoops. I wish the HWA were to create a slot in which horror podcasts could be made eligible for a Stoker Award.

  3. I loved The Red Empress and do hope you will add other parts of the Black Fire Concerto. The tension was maintained throughout and the details so nicely done that I easily visualized everything.

  4. “Red Empress” was an exciting tale, but I especially appreciated the world oozing from its paragraphs. It felt like a dying Earth type of story, where a far-future humanity declines upon a decaying planet.

  5. There was so much imagination behind this story. Incredible! I just discovered this podcast, so I’m a little behind but SO addicted. I also love the intro music.
