Halloweeny Radio Dramaness.

There was, by the time I was a teenager, only one horror radio show for a kid to stay up and listen to in bed. So boy, did I listen to the CBC’s Nightfall. Somewhere around the same time, I read Anthony Boucher’s classic “They Bite,” and it became one of my favorite horror stories evar. But it wouldn’t be until many years later, on the Internet, that I learned Nightfall had done an adaptation of that story.

Still pretty great, and if it’s not your cup of tea, how about their adaptation of Robert Aickman’s masterpiece “Ringing the Changes?” Or “Carmilla?” Or my favorite one I did listen do, back in the early eighties, William Hope Hodgson’s “The Stone Ship.”

Anyway, Nightfall was a pretty quality late-entry horror radio series, if you’ve never heard any of it, and pretty much every episode, you can find online someplace these days. You love living in the future.

Oh, and I also have a Halloween story for sale this week on Kindle, in case you didn’t know.
