Well, August is here and that means your air conditioner is probably on overload but it also means you can stream a brand-new FANGORIA'S DREADTIME STORIES episode for FREE or purchase it via download, commercial free with extended scenes, for only $1.99. August's episode is entitled "Talking in the Dark" and your host into the macabre, as always, is Malcolm McDowell.
"Talking in the Dark" is written by Dennis Etchison, who also brought you our first episode, "The Late Shift." Here's the plot for "Talking in the Dark" ...Victor Rippon is a lonely man in a small town. Ever since his wife left him he lives a quiet, bleak existence, with no friends to speak of except for Jolene, a plump, good-natured waitress at the local diner. She'd like to be more than a friend to him, but Victor remains withdrawn and oblivious. How can she break through his shell? Victor's only real interest seems to be his favorite writer, Rex Christian. Victor is obsessed with Rex's horror stories, which somehow seem more real to him than his own boring life. Now, as Christmas draws near, a chance remark from Jolene gives Victor a reckless idea. It's a last-ditch attempt to reach out to the one person who might understand: Rex Christian himself.
The cast includes: Malcolm McDowell (Host), Kurt Naebig (Victor), Danny Goldring (Rex), Ann Sonneville (Jolene), Tim Dadabo (James), Lisa Wolf (Lori), Aidan Edwards (Tad), Julian Marrero (Ray), Carl Amari (Man), JoBe Cerny (Walt), C.J. Amari (Boy) and Jim McCance (Hank & Fangoria Announcer).
I hope you enjoyed last month's episode "Mercy" by Max Allan Collins. Max's next script is "House of Blood" which will be our December, 2012 offering.

Each episode will 'thrill you and chill you' but I warn you: These radio dramas are not for the feint of heart. We recommend that persons under the age of 14 not tune in! Although these episodes are meant to amuse and exercise your imagination - they can be quite scary, shocking, and include adult language and adult situations. FANGORIA'S DREADTIME STORIES are hosted by acclaimed actor, Malcolm McDowell. They are written by top writers of today and include full casts (often featuring Hollywood celebrities), movie-quality sound effects and original music scores by Fangoria's Editor-in-Chief, and accomplished composer, Chris Alexander.

Next month, you won't want to miss "The Final Battlefield" by Barry Richert. Here's the plot for September's episode "The Final Battlefield":
After a four-year tour of duty in Viet Nam, Private Daniel Conway is glad to be home in Clover Ridge, Iowa. But his joy is short-lived when he is haunted by frightening visions of The Hangman, a vicious Viet Cong officer with a penchant for torture whom Daniel encountered during his stay in a prisoner-of-war camp. Pushed to the brink of madness by the continual appearances of his tormenter, Daniel is forced to ask himself an unthinkable question: Has The Hangman followed him home?
You may recall Barry's previous episode "The Dark Enforcer" which had a ton of great feedback from fans.
