Sometimes "happily ever after" is no guarantee. We feature short, original fairy tales that turn towards the dark and unsettling.
These stories are not intended for children, but most of them do stand alone.
A newly married queen gets to know her fabled husband.
A New Place
Death allows herself to be led away. Follow-up to Gravestone.
A sailor hears a song at sea.
Holiday Special: A Little World
Scott reads a story he wrote 20 years ago.
Special: On A Dark Cold Night Creativity Challenge for the Sonar Network
I'm joined by Kristen Zaza from the On A Dark, Cold Night podcast to come up with a collaborative swapping story starting from the word "headquarters."
Audio edited and compiled by Michael Mongiardi and Marianna Miniotis from the Sonar Network.
The Witch Boy (Sleep pt 6of6)
The witch boy tries to defeat the queen.
For a while now I’ve been searching for something to match the surrealism of the Diary of Totov Roddle, or the adventure of Kino’s journey with that hint of magical realism, without luck until... I discovered this incredible writer. These are fairy tales like you’ve never heard before.
A dark little treasure
I’ve been listening for months now, sporadically saving and binging episodes. The narrative style suits the subject so well and the ambient sounds really set the mood for brilliantly, thought provoking tales. Lovely, bite sized little treats for the ears.
Dark, Little Delights
A really nice podcast. Short, bitesize narratives to play on your mind throughout the day.
Very welcome in my playlist. ^^
