This week, Willow and Phil are barely keeping it together, but they talk about Robert Aickman’s weird weird story “Larger Than Oneself!” Let’s all merge into a glowing ball of light, okay? Anything is better than whatever’s going on here.
This week, Willow and I get all up in the sticks! Karl Edward Wagner’s “Sticks” that is! These sticks and stone won’t break your bones, but they will get your head caved in by a frying pan! Enjoy!
BOO! Don’t worry, I’m not a ghost. Or, am I? This week, Willow and I are talkin’ ghosts with Edith Nesbit’s “John Charrington’s Wedding!” It’s short, but spooky!
This week, Willow and I actually talk about the story! It’s “The Autopsy” by the inimitable Michael Shea. Also, what’s a bomb?
This week, Willow and I touch on a work by the master of speculative fiction: “The Crowd” by Ray Bradbury! And, by “touch on” I mean “kinda talk about a little.” Mostly, we discuss “Screwballs 2: Loose Screws!” Or, I discuss it and Willow sighs a lot.
Better late than never! Willow and I discuss J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s “Mr. Justice Harbottle!”
Things are running late this week, so here’s a minisode where I babble incoherently about “An Account Of Some Strange Disturbances In Aungier Street!”
Let’s get literary! This week, we’re taking a look at Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown.” Is it horror? Is it really even a story? Your guess is as good as ours!
This week, Willow and I get angry at a story that really really should have thought harder about what it was trying to say. It’s “The Whimper of Whipped Dogs” by Harlan Ellison!
Wouldn’t it be chilly with no skin on? That is a question about a scary skeleton song! But, this story is not about scary skeletons, but scary rich people who overstay their welcome in a small town! It’s “The Summer People” by Shirley Jackson!
