    Story Summary:
    Billy deeply loved his Grandma Baccalieri. She kept him warm and happy after his parents died and he had to move in with her. He especially enjoyed her baked desserts from the old country — from her cinnamon cream torte to her vanilla-blueberry pie.

    But Billy knew that his Grandma just had to die. Because of her malochia… her horrible, evil eye… her terrifying curse….

    Warning: The Wicked Library is a horror fiction podcast created for a mature audience. Our stories contain graphic descriptions of pain, murder, violence, blood, betrayal, and inhumanity; monsters win, people die, and hope is often shattered. There is also beauty, heart, catharsis, and raw emotion. Fear may be deeply personal, but we all share it.

    If at any time a story takes you to a place too dark, turn on the lights, press pause, or press stop. And always remember, that unlike in the real world, these nightmares, and your participation in them, are under your control.

    Welcome to The Wicked Library for our season of Sci-Fi Themed Horror.
    Author: Ricardo Victoria
    Storyteller: André Luc Martinez
    Host: Addison Peacock

    Featuring a custom score by Nico Vettese, of We Talk of Dreams.

    Story Summary:
    Exploring the cosmos is a risky proposition. It is cold, silent, uncaring, and vast. No matter how well prepared, or how careful you are, nothing can protect you from the unexpected. Especially when it comes to finding signs that we were not alone in the universe, or when those signs come from forms of life beyond our expectations or comprehension. It can go even worse when those forms of life are ancient, insidious, and choose to mess with your head for their own ineffable reasons. Beware, listener, for the dark corners of the cosmos will get you sooner or later.

    Story Summary:
    Lizzy is a bi-racial teen who escapes her reality of growing up in a homogeneously white rural town in Central Pennsylvania in the mid-80’s by dropping acid and embracing the local punk scene.

Great horror podcast

I love horror podcasts and this is one I’ve started listening to daily. Even signed up for the Patreon bonuses. Worth listening to and I love The Librarian. The Private Collector is my fave series In the show

Not-fun ,

Please consider the listener

Please work on your format. Opening with ads and studio preamble is all fine, but when it's past the ten minute mark and your reader is just doing a self introduction, i dip. Cast and crew bios go at the end, folks.
