    The Minister’s Black Veil – Nathaniel Hawthorne

    The eccentricities of individuals tend to bring out the extremes in people. This week's story brings the tale of a minister's challenges in dealing with his congregation's changing perception of him.  Despite their lack of understanding, Reverend Hooper is committed to his choices regardless of the outcome.

    In a time of strife and contention, a figure rises up to draw the masses together.  The question is, what are his intentions? This extremely short tale gives us a glimpse into the manifestation of one of Lovecraft's more notorious creations from his dream world.

    The Novel of the White Powder – Arthur Machen

    The Novel of the White Powder – Arthur Machen

    It's stories like this that make me glad we have better regulations on prescription drugs.  Tonight's episode is a tale of misfortune and bad chance as a weary scholar tries to revive his heath and vitality.  Many of our stories have a haunting twist that is typically the fault of the protagonist.  Sometimes, however, bad things happen to good people and you just have to deal with the outcomes.

    In The Court Of The Dragon – Robert W. Chambers

    In The Court Of The Dragon – Robert W. Chambers

    For many, there is a feeling of peace and calm inside the walls of a church.  Our protagonist was hoping for the same feeling and a brief respite after a stressful few days. What he found instead, chilled him to the core and brought him face to face with a familiar foe.

    The Music of Erich Zann by H.P. Lovecraft

    The Music of Erich Zann by H.P. Lovecraft

    Wednesday's Weird Stories returns after it's brief hiatus with one of my favorite Lovecraft tales.  The Music of Erich Zann weaves a harmony of supernatural horror and mystery in true Lovecraft fashion.  One of the things I really enjoy about H.P.'s short stories is that you don't really need to ever meet the "monster" to have the fear of it.



    Tune in this Wednesday at 8pm central to Rock'd Soul Radio for the return of your weekly source for the spooky!

    Wednesday’s Weird Stories – The Invisible Girl by Mary Shelley

    Wednesday’s Weird Stories – The Invisible Girl by Mary Shelley

    This week's story falls more into the weird realm for me rather than the paranormal or spooky.  There are themes throughout The Invisible Girl that challenge not only the sensibilities of the day, but are still things that we consider taboo today.  What do you do when love does not seem to fit into the expectations of those around you?  What lengths would you go to in order to protect it?



    Listen in live at 8pm central every Wednesday for a new tale from the depths of gothic horror, pulp fiction, and weird tales!
