cleanse

There are reliable narrators, there are unreliable narrators? and then there are outliers like the one heard here. 'Clearly guilty of murder, he somehow remains committed to his narrative,' one journalist wrote of him. 'I wasn't sure whether to look at him with a strange kind of awe, or simply run screaming and never look back.'

No one in attendance at the talk on that December night in New England, 2021, really knew what they would hear from the presenter, though they certainly knew his name.

prisoner

There is a curious fact about the tiny railway station mentioned by the teller of this story that he would never know: Almost sixty years before the events he describes, the station was partially demolished in the night by someone or something unknown, and had to be rebuilt from the ground up. Unknown, yes, but there were indeed whispers--from the older folk mostly, people long dead by the time the weary and hungry narrator appeared in the mountains utterly by chance.

_____________________________________

P.S. What are we hearing at the very end of this episode? If you ask me, it's nothing more than the voice of the strange, lonely soul from a different part of the story, comforting himself as he walks ever onward. On this night, he seems to have found what he's been looking for, one small victory that means something only to him ... and that, for now, is enough to keep him moving tirelessly forward, mile after mile, friendless and lost in the dark, another one of night's unloved orphans.  -S.N.

fields

The next time you take a long country drive, look to your left and right as the scenery rolls by, the forgotten places where no footsteps tread for weeks, months, maybe years at a time. How long would it be before anyone noticed that such a place had become shelter for something unspeakable?

Listeners might also enjoy the dark suspense tale An Oral History Of Hell.

guest

He was a teenager who suddenly had no place to sleep, no money, and no options. The world had quickly become a very scary place ... and then shelter appeared much too conveniently.

chasm

In the space of minutes, a travel writer venturing alone in remote waters goes from a state of enviable tranquility to blinding terror.

Producer and photographer Jeffrey Laub has done a series of photographic portraits of characters from the podcast; check them out at http://jeffreylaub.com/index.php/projects/.

P.S. Fans of zombie stories--non-traditional ones, that is--might be interested in an audio novella of mine called Song of the Living Dead over at http://thosesnowynights.libsyn.com/.

landmark

Somewhere near your house it stands, one of those decaying places that people always whisper about as they pass by. For every day you age, it seems to age three. But it may well live beyond you, silently daring you each night at dusk to enter, coldly confident you'll always be too afraid.

sleep

There exists in this life a very real, horrifying phenomenon that science cannot yet extinguish. It strikes a surprising number of people, and none of us are safe. And if it comes for you, it will come at the most vulnerable moment you will ever know.

bargain

It seemed like such a simple deal, but it felt wrong from the very beginning--and led to a glimpse of a horror which, for those with even a little experience peering into the shadows, need not be named.

Artist David Montano created this image for the tale:

staircase

A comfortable suburban existence begins to fracture with a single sound. You may have heard it sometime yourself, but those who have surely possess no need for stories like these to haunt them.

Artist Jessica Mellen created this eerie bit of business with this episode in mind.

legend

A tale made specifically for the campfire--a simple tale of the woods, long-buried secrets, and letting chances to escape terror slip agonizingly away.

Some places are so remote that just to explore them is an invitation to the phantoms that know we're alone.

A man attempting to solve a strange gap in his memory meets a man claiming to offer an answer--one too frightening for mere mortals to grasp.

presence

Very few people had ever even heard of the Poldrict House, let alone investigated it. Surely the lack of fascination within the paranormal community was justified...

A cruel game of psychological brinksmanship among thieves breaks the sanity of its most dangerous competitor.

proof

The unexpected phone call's origin raised many questions, but for a man anxious to discover real evidence of mysterious forces at work all around us, there was little question a journey was to be made.

A Second Quick Trilogy of Terror

Another three tales roughly and tersely told.

Check out Jason Hill's narration of the third story of the group here.

And see how he captured the story's essence in this eerie drawing.
