    The Masque of the Red Death, by Edgar Allan Poe

    A fresh take on Edgar Allen Poe’s classic “The Masque of the Red Death” – featuring an all-star cast of New England actors, and immersive location sound recording, and an inventive script, this production re-imagines Poe’s tale of a group of ill-fated improvisatori who take on an audience with the ‘dark prince’ who holds extravagant balls to distract the gentry from the ravages of the plague.
    Produced by William Dufris and AudioComics as part of their “HorrorScopes” series. With field-recording by Fred Greenhalgh / FinalRune Productions.

    The Floodgates of Willowhill, by Mary SanGiovanni

    The Floodgates of Willowhill, by Mary SanGiovanni

    "Everybody whose grown up in Faulkesville, well, they’ve always guessed there’s something wrong with the woods on the edge of town, the ones that border Willowhill, something people don’t like to bring up in polite company." Teenage Samantha keeps her nose in her books and her head in the clouds - in lands far beyond the borders of the small town of Faulkesville where she's grown up... Where her parents mysteriously died two years ago, and where her Uncle Ted and buddy Hank Jedsoe are about to discover the real horrors that lurk in the haunted woods on the edge of town.

I love this podcast

This podcast has so many great stories about the Dark Tome. It’s so interesting and informative and the story line gives so many details descriptions

Amazing

After listening to a season without giving a review or looking at shows rating I assumed it would have 10,000+ 5 star reviews. Now that I finally take the time to I am blown away at only 1000 ratings. This show has world class production value, combined with an immersive story with witty characters. It’s one of the first fiction podcasts I have listed to but won’t be the last realm production. Already had me binge Silverwood in it’s entirety!!

What happened to Cassie and Gussy?

You got me into the story arc in seasons 1 and 2, and then they just disappeared.

Kept listening hoping you’d bring them back, but nope. Gone like a fart in the wind.
