Episode 202: Creeping Danger by Carl H. Claudy

Posted in Carl H. Claudy, Science Fiction, Short Story on October 5, 2018 by dunesteef

CREEPING DANGER

In 1937, Carl H. Claudy published a story called “Creeping Danger” in a popular magazine called American Boy magazine. In 2018, Rish Outfield discovered a copy of American Boy magazine in an old trunk in a shed called the Tin Garage, and decided that story would make an interesting episode of the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine. So, here it is, a reading of a historical pulp science fiction story from the thirties. Hope you enjoy!

Special thanks to Marshal Latham for lending his voice to this production.

Oh, here’s that picture of the fly attacking the cowboy that Rish mentioned as well. Check it out if you like:

Episode 194: Scare Tactics by Aeryn Rudel

Posted in Aeryn Rudel, Horror, Short Story on June 25, 2017 by dunesteef

Scare Tactics

Lindsey is a paranormal investigator, but she has an advantage on most, because she has the demon Adramelech captured in a Raggedy Ann doll, and it does her bidding, which makes casting out the demon really simple. Today, however, things are different. The house they’ve come to investigate has an actual presence that’s already there, and it has bad intentions.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about continuing stories, Patreons, and changes coming to the podcast in the near future.
