    Paul Stephenson writes pulp fiction for the digital age. His new serial, The Sunset Chronicles, is a dystopian sci-fi thriller that will delight and terrify fans of science fiction and horror alike. Visit [paulstephensonbooks.com](http://paulstephensonbooks.com/) to find out more.

    Alexandra is a bilingual voice actress and writer who lives in the Netherlands. She loves everything to do with stories, especially creative and playful horror.

Better_Lucky ,

Absolutely Incredible

Honestly one of the best horror podcasts out there. Every episode tells you what kind of story you’re gonna get and it’s even sorted by genre! I love that especially cause so many similar podcasts are like three stories at once and there’s no good way to pick and choose. At 30 minutes per episode it’s super easy to listen to and the stories are almost always really good. The narrator does a great job too!
