  • Episode 34: Comets, Cults, and Creatures From Outer Space

    2 OCT. 2023 · Comet Nishimura gave us all a once in several lifetimes chance to experience the wonders of space, and for most earthlings it was a wondrous momentous occasion. But to those who may still believe in the Comet's mysteriously ominous place in the annals of doomsday prophesies and catastrophe, perhaps things looked a little different. Come with me this week as I explore the Comet's complicated history and relationship with mankind, then sit back and enjoy a different kind of brush with green tinted extra terrestrial terror as I read When The Moon Turned Green, by Hal K.

I take a deep dive into the archives to find the creepiest lost treasures of the public domain. While the stories take center stage, I like to share some of the incredible information I come across while seeking out new topics, so I start each episode with some history, examples from true crime, science and other insights to get those little gray cells working. Then I give you my best dramatic read of horror, mystery, science fiction, paranormal, and just plain freaky fiction eeked from the greats of horror and fantasy and their lesser known contemporaries. These authors created mind-breaking, chill-inducing, legacies of literary genius. It is my mission to resurrect their masterpieces, and bring them back into our nights.

So, gather round, snuggle up tight, maybe turn on a light, and prepare for a fright!
