Season 3 Announcement | Halloween Special
Today we announced Dark Tome Season 3 - yahooo! Coming in January, 2021. Also, a re-play of a classic horror radio play, reinvented by Fred's FinalRune Productions. Three men who tend the light at a reclusive island off the coast of French Guiana see a rogue ship adrift in the Atlantic. The reason for the derelict ship soon becomes obvious – it has been overrun by hundreds of thousands of ferocious ship’s rats. The rats land on the isle and soon we are in for a claustrophobic tale of terror as the three men struggle to keep their minds from cracking under the pressure of thousands and thousands of squeaking, scratching, hungry rats. Written by George Toudouze, adapted for radio by James Poe *Part of the FinalRune/Mad Horse Old Time Radio on Location Project*

Curious History of the Dark Tome, Epilogue - An Essay by Mr. Gussy
"I gotta give you a warning: there is no truth about the Dark Tome. If you think I can tell you anything certain about it, well, turn your computer off now and knock yourself in the head for the fool you are. What makes you think we can ever understand something so old?"A special episode featuring recovered tape of the author, Wilbur Gussy, reading his controversial 1999 essay, "The Curious History of the Dark Tome," long thought to be an apocryphal part of internet history. Though its authenticity has been hotly debated in academic and online forums over the ensuing two decades, none can cast doubt how effective it was at creating a lucrative online book business for the AOL user who wrote it. The more cynical online commenters suggest that it was written as a crass commercial publicity stunt.

The Days of Flaming Motorcycles, by Catherynne M. Valente
Caitlin no longer tracks days by the calendar - instead, it's by the theme covers of the journals she writes while she goes to work at the derelict Java Shack in Augusta, Maine. The themes of these journals, e.g. "The Days of Flaming Motorcycles," are both a useful counter of time and contain the truthful account of her observations of the zombie apocalypse... A mesmerizing story of pandemic and zombies by Catherynne M. Valente, NYT bestselling author of over two dozen works of fiction and poetry (including one of my personal all-time-favorites, the Orphan’s Tales). Read by Kat Moraros, a Chicago-based actor originally hailing from North Yarmouth, Maine. Kat has a deep background of stage, film and voice acting, and is represented by Gill Talent Group Chicago. www.katmoraros.com ( http://www.katmoraros.com ) @katmoraros Female zombie FX by Sarah Golding, AKA Quirky Voices, sarahgoldingvoiceactorandmore.weebly.com and host of the MADIVA podcast for voice actors. Produced, designed, and some zombie sounds by Fred Greenhalgh, co-creator of the Dark Tome.
