    TWL 1101: "T-Minus 4...3...2", by Crystal Connor

    TWL 1101: "T-Minus 4...3...2", by Crystal Connor

    Welcome back to The Wicked Library for our season of Sci-Fi Themed Horror. We kick of the season with a dark tale written by Crystal Connor and told by Denise Michelle Johnson, accompanied by a custom score by Nico Vettese of We Talk of Dreams.

    Story Summary:
    In this dark tale, we jump into the past, then the future, multiple times to bear witness to a war of ages. Science and myth are combined into a terrifying adventure in this story spanning centuries.

    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 are under your control.

My favorite.

Absolutely am enthralled with this show and heartbroken with the end of TPC. I have become addicted to it, and I’m sad that the Librarian had to move on. I’m sure that Frank will do what needs to be done, though.
Thank you all for this wonderfully amazing podcast.

#Scary #Amazing

Love this podcast! All involved are so amazing. Even got a chance to meet a couple of years ago and even in person they are all amazing! If you aren’t listening to this podcast then you’re missing out on some amazing tales.
