    A Quarantine Special / 10k download milestone bonus episode. “Status-Quo” is a stand-alone short story, in which a young man is haunted by his unclear crimes and the immanent arrival of a parole officer who is not of this world. Pursuing a theme of “cosmic-authority-horror”.
    Written & narrated by Equanimous Rex. Audio mastered by James Curcio. Music provided by Equanimous Rex, and by P. Emerson Williams of PANICMACHINE. You can find more PANICMACHINE at digital.panicmachine.com Season Two of The Witch-Doctor is currently in the works with over 20k words of rough draft material, and more to come.

    Lilith Origins: Dark Passenger

    Lilith Origins: Dark Passenger

    The Witch-Doctor Presents...Lilith Origins: Dark Passenger
    A limited run podcast microseries, set within the Fallen Cycle mythos. Written and Narrated by James Curcio https://www.jamescurcio.com/Warning: This episode contains adult themes, disturbing imagery, rampant megalomania, unreliable narrators, and the spiral of violence that accompanies the dehumanization of others when coupled with mad, amoral science, and even worse, the realm of ideas. 
    In this microseries we bring you another installment in the Fallen Cycle mythos, an exclusive reading of Lilith Origins: Dark Passenger. This story can stand on its own, but if you’re wondering how it ties together with everything else we’ve been doing here, I recommend you check out Party At The World’s End, a novel written by James Curcio. You can find more information at Party At The World's End on Fallencycle.com, along with all other Fallen Cycle projects. 
    Listener discretion is advised.
    The music in this episode was created by James Curcio, P. Emerson Williams, Scott Landes, Sean Marz and Johan Ess.
    If you liked what you heard, you can find more at The Fallen Cycle bandcamp at fallencycle.bandcamp.com, P. Emerson William's Panic Machine at digital.panicmachine.com, or Johan Ess's bandcamp at johan-ess.bandcamp.com
    Special thanks for providing synth elements as well as audio mastering to Johan Ess.

Podcastorial ,

Great for drives

Love it! Clearly a new podcaster, but the story is solid and entertaining. Glad he got a new mic though. Not sure what genre it qualifies as, keeps me guessing. Can't wait to see what happens!

A lot of promise

When I first started listening to this, the audio was spotty, with minor editing and the author was still finding his groove. Listening to the newer episodes I'd gladly stay it's worth your time, as he's improved on the above points. Solid world building and character development, not to mention the wide range of types of character he has created.

Garblewarg ,

Complex and amazing story

the story Equanimous Rex builds is subtle and unnerving in its complexity and brillance. what starts as a missing persons story unravels into a tale of a not-so-far-off world and it's creeping unsettling horror and wonder writhing and stretching as it settles onto its new legs. this is going places i can't wait to see. a slow burn that is turning into a rolling unraveling tale. for one man creating a narrative on his own out of his own motivation to share his ideas, this has captured a magic i can't wait to see fully invoked.
