Welcome back dear fiends! This is Season 1 Episode 10. Tonight’s featured author is Mark Slade. Mark has a knack for writing stories with an interesting twist. He’s been published in anthologies by Horrified Press along with two of his books. His book Electric Funeral was published by Sundry Press.
I’m happy to present two of Mark’s stories this evening. In each it appears there is a common theme – desire. After all, it’s part of the human experience. Who hasn’t thought about, wished, or been taught to want to improve themselves? Whether through education, work, practice, rehearsal, endlessly plugging away at your goals and dreams – we all understand it. Here’s a question for you to think about – what if you could bypass all that effort? Would you do it? What price would you be willing to pay? In the first story “Giving Up the Ghost” we find out one possible answer.
Mark’s second tale “Prayer Mask” takes the question further. Once the goal has been attained (regardless of the means – moral or immoral) what would you be capable of doing if you were the target of another and had it taken from you, not once but multiple times, for the sake of your goals and perhaps for payback? Listen and find out.
Thank you Mark for your marvelous and creepy contributions in this evening’s episode!
And as always, a big thank you to all of you, the listeners! To know you’re out there and listening means so much to me – you dear fiends are immensely appreciated by me!
Time to take my leave of you for now, I’ll be back with some fresh scares soon!
Good night and sweet screams,
