    It seems like the horrors of our dreams are most frightening to you... 
    On the Eve of Halloween, a dozen storytellers sneak inside the abandoned Darklight Carnival grounds to share a chilling batch of stories in two varieties. This year they split up to uncover the fears that lurk within and horrors that walk among us.
    One group will head to the Ferris Wheel to tell tales of real-world terror. The other will venture into the Funhouse to spin yarns of the frightening spirit world. Which path will you embark on first?
    Nine II Midnight is a collaborative storytelling event between 12 podcasts:

    NINE II MIDNIGHT - Prologue

    NINE II MIDNIGHT - Prologue

    On the Eve of Halloween, 14 storytellers make their way to the Darklight Carnival and share horrific tales of mystery and murder… but not all is as it seems.
    This October 30th, the feed you’re listening to now, along with all other participating shows, will post two episodes simultaneously for Nine II Midnight. One episode will feature tales that are baked in reality with terrors that may be a part of our waking life. The other episode will share the horror of the most esoteric and spiritual side of the dark and terrifying.
    NINE II MIDNIGHT is another collaborative storytelling event, and sequel to last year’s episode. Both episodes are comprised of stories written and produced by the Nine II Midnight participants:
    Hell Gate City
    Malevolent
    Nowhere, On Air
    Out of the Ashes
    Parkdale Haunt
    The Cellar Letters
    The Dead Letter Office of Somewhere, Ohio
    The Night Post
    The Storage Papers
    The Town Whispers
    Wake Of Corrosion
    WOE.BEGONE
    On October 30th, you get to choose which stories you want to enjoy first, then, make sure to listen to the other for the complete tale.
    See you then.

Best podcast ever

I had started listening to this podcast last year… and “I’m in love with it” would be an understatement. Hats off to Jonathan Sims for such amazing content and a special thanks to the editors who keep the background just enough to make it sound like a true horror.

Terrifyingly addictive

I've been listening to this podcast almost non stop over the last few weeks in an effort to catch up, and this is a wonderful podcast! The feelings of genuine terror that this show has evoked are on a level unparalleled by others I have listened to. The production value and attention to detail are absolutely stunning. I love the Magnus Archives and live in perpetual concern for its employees

Pretty damn good

The writing is particularly good. The over aching plot is really cool when the dots start to join, but it does take a long time to get to that point. A downside is the sound production. The tape recorder EQ treatment of the voice - while its part of the story, it’s over used and is tiresome to listen to. The dynamic range makes it difficult to hear everything clearly without constantly turning the volume up and down. Also, a lack of cast members means that several characters are played by the same voice - eg ep 39, the character Elias is clearly the same actor as John the head archivist - this really pulled me out of the story at this point. Other than that, very enjoyable.
