Host emeritus Fred Greenhalgh is back to try out the sofa and tell us about his new podcast, “The Dark Tome.”
What if there was a book that literally opened up doorways to other worlds? Where would it lead, and could you handle what you found on the other side?
Cassie, a wayward teen, is about to find out. One day, after she wraps up community service at a local hospital, she stumbles out of the basement of a spooky bookshop and into a story set on a devil’s staircase in a remote Italian village.
The Dark Tome is a new take on the anthology audio fiction podcast, featuring fantastic stories by contemporary authors from across the globe.
This episode features the first half of the chilling modern fable “The Devil on the Staircase” by Joe Hill.
