Episode 51: Halloween Bonus – The Monkey’s Paw by W.W. Jacobs

Posted in Horror, Short Story, W.W. Jacobs on October 29, 2009 by dunesteef

It’s a special Halloween treat…or is it a trick? W.W. Jacobs’ “The Monkey’s Paw” was just an ordinary little paw, dried to a mummy. But if used correctly (or incorrectly), it was much more than that.

Also, Rish and Big share a few words about this story, its ending, and a bit more about Halloween.

Episode 50: Mother’s Harvest by Alex Moisi

Posted in Alex Moisi, Horror, Short Story on October 24, 2009 by dunesteef

Mrs. Rose loves the October visits with her two grandchildren, but this year the boys seem less interested in the truly important things in life. Is it that they’ve become teenagers now . . . or has evil finally entered their hearts?

Also, Rish and Big talk about Halloween traditions, their fondness for the holiday, and killing Mister Harris with flour.

Special thanks to Julie Hoverson and Josh Roseman for lending their voices to this episode.

Episode 49: Mermaid Beach by Douglas T. Araujo

Posted in Douglas T. Araujo, Horror, Short Story on October 18, 2009 by dunesteef


After the death of their child, John and Claire go on a much-needed vacation. They don’t heed the warnings of the old man who tells them to keep away from Mermaid Beach. Bad idea.

Also, Big and Rish talk a little bit about unhappy endings, and it turns out that Big has at least one irrational fear after all.

William Serrill has gone back to his childhood home for a vacation, the house he and his overactive, terrified imagination so feared decades ago. But was it really just his imagination? If so, what is that sound coming from upstairs?

Also, Rish and Big talk about irrational fears (mostly Rish’s, the big baby).

The October Scary Story Event

Posted in Administrative, Alex Moisi, Amanda Crum, Doug McIntire, Kevin Anderson, OSSE on October 3, 2009 by dunesteef

Once again, we at The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine will be having a special short story writing event during the month of October. Basically the deal is this: write a scary story within the month of October, and submit it to us. The best story or two will be made into an episode of our show. It doesn’t have to be an idea you came up with during the month of October, just write the story in October. And be sure it’s scary. That’s all it takes. You have a little less than a month now, so you’d better get started.

When you submit your story, be sure to note in the subject line that it is for the October Scary Story Event. That is all, return to what you were doing. Thank you.
