    Curious History of the Dark Tome, Epilogue - An Essay by Mr. Gussy

    Curious History of the Dark Tome, Epilogue - An Essay by Mr. Gussy

    "I gotta give you a warning: there is no truth about the Dark Tome. If you think I can tell you anything certain about it, well, turn your computer off now and knock yourself in the head for the fool you are. What makes you think we can ever understand something so old?"

    A special episode featuring recovered tape of the author, Wilbur Gussy, reading his controversial 1999 essay, "The Curious History of the Dark Tome," long thought to be an apocryphal part of internet history.

    Though its authenticity has been hotly debated in academic and online forums over the ensuing two decades, none can cast doubt how effective it was at creating a lucrative online book business for the AOL user who wrote it. The more cynical online commenters suggest that it was written as a crass commercial publicity stunt.

    The Days of Flaming Motorcycles, by Catherynne M. Valente

    The Days of Flaming Motorcycles, by Catherynne M. Valente

    Caitlin no longer tracks days by the calendar - instead, it's by the theme covers of the journals she writes while she goes to work at the derelict Java Shack in Augusta, Maine. The themes of these journals, e.g. "The Days of Flaming Motorcycles," are both a useful counter of time and contain the truthful account of her observations of the zombie apocalypse...

    A mesmerizing story of pandemic and zombies by Catherynne M. Valente, NYT bestselling author of over two dozen works of fiction and poetry (including one of my personal all-time-favorites, the Orphan’s Tales).

    Read by Kat Moraros, a Chicago-based actor originally hailing from North Yarmouth, Maine. Kat has a deep background of stage, film and voice acting, and is represented by Gill Talent Group Chicago. www.katmoraros.com @katmoraros

    Female zombie FX by Sarah Golding, AKA Quirky Voices, sarahgoldingvoiceactorandmore.weebly.com and host of the MADIVA podcast for voice actors.

    Produced, designed, and some zombie sounds by Fred Greenhalgh, co-creator of the Dark Tome.

    The Green Knight's Wife, by Kat Howard

    The Green Knight's Wife, by Kat Howard

    "The boys arrive with the changing of the weather, ushered in by winter’s cold. Once a year, at the beginning of December, those silly boys who think coming here means they are brave. All of them so eager to test their worth on the edge of my husband’s axe."

    For this winter's solstice, we dramatize a sharp (ha, ha) story by Kat Howard (http://www.kathowardbooks.com/ & @katwithsword) that subverts the Arthurian legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. What happens when the Green Knight's Wife has a chance to tell the story?

    Feat. Moira Driscoll, William Dufris, Stephen McLaughlin, and Thomas Campbell.

    Sound design by Rory O'Shea with music by Blue Dot Sessions (http://www.sessions.blue/), Mind's Eye Productions, & AudioJungle.

    Produced & Directed by Fred Greenhalgh, originally appearing in Uncanny Magazine - https://uncannymagazine.com/article/green-knights-wife/
