Demons, desperate souls, and eldritch horrors…
We at the Westside Fairytales have written a story for you. Not you in that broad sense where you just means anybody, but you, Dear Listener. We know all about you. What makes you nervous, what sickens you, what keeps you from leaving your house sometimes for the maddening worry of it. And we’ve put it in a story. A story we’ll read for you.
These strange and varied original tales will linger long after you've finished listening.
The Westside Fairytales horror and dark fiction podcast is an award-winning audiodrama written, read, and produced by author Tyler Bell. New episodes are released every month and can be found at westsidefairytales.com, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
The first 4 seasons are comprised of a variety of short stories. Seasons 5 and 6 each are a season-long novel broken into episodic chapters. While each story can stand on its own, all content takes place in the extended Westside Fairytales universe, with continuing themes, characters, and connections.
The Horror and Lit Club episodes are discussions, interviews, and reviews that are separate from the regular fiction episodes.

    Sin Carriers 3 - Introductions

    Sin Carriers 3 - Introductions

    In chapter 3 of the Westside Fairytales horror and dark fiction podcast’s story Sin Carriers, a team of misfits embarks safely, heading east. With nothing but time on their hands, our disparate cast makes their introductions, both to us, and to each other. Some of these first meetings are friendly, others awkward, and at least one close to deadly. The shadow of the mysterious Rider looms tall over our travelers, and it's no great reach to believe the Pinkertons have yet to abandon their chase.

    Sin Carriers 6 - Tension

    In chapter 6 of the Westside Fairytales horror and dark fiction podcast’s story Sin Carriers, our travelers recover from the aftermath of the Pinkerton attack and discover whether the few revelations about their pasts might hurt relations with the rest of the crew. Conversations are had amongst the drivers, the security personnel, and the VIPs about what’s to come as the bodies of the Pinkertons killed aboard the train are unceremoniously dumped into the desert. And all the while, the mysterious wood piles seem to exert their influence all the more over certain members of the crew.

Nothing better on the pods. Nothing.

I am NOT overstating Tyler’s talent when I tell you he is the voice of a generation. I mourn every ear that has not had the honor and pleasure of hearing this work. Listen now, listen often, and spread the word. This man deserves an audience of millions. Give it to him.

I really wish you had not become so political .

Tyler Bell is one of a kind!

If you think you’ll find something similar, just stop now…. You won’t. The man is a literary genius. I can only hope that he gets the recognition he’s always deserved. Now if you like horror and you like podcasts but want something completely new and original…. you’ve found it!
