We continue our offerings for October with another spooky story. This work of speculative fiction by Kevin Frane would be right at home on “The Twilight Zone.” It’s a two-parter with a nice slow build-up and burn.

Now that we’re halfway through October, we have another Halloween story. This is the second of Simon Barber’s H. P. Lushcraft tales to have appeared here, which are loving comedic homages to the milieu of H. P. Lovecraft. The story mixes wry dark humor with horror elements, as well as some romance this time.

Drabblecast – The Outsider   August 31st, 2010

The Drabblecast, the podcast of strange-fiction has a nice tribute for H. P. Lovecraft’s birthday again this year.

The Outsider does not have animal characters, but it is another wonderful use of anthropomorphism and dealing with The Other. It’s a nice bit of dramatic and sympathetic horror and Norm Sherman does a wonderful job narrating the tale.
