3 Spooky Radio Stories
November 1, 2012 § 5 Comments
Because Halloween should last all autumn, don’t you think?
I’m mourning the end of October by sharing what was a pretty exciting Halloween present for me, to have three–not 1 but 3!–short stories of mine read by actors and performed for the radio on OSU’s Writers Talk, for its 4th annual Halloween show. Plus, at the end, an interview with RL Stine! LITTLE KNOWN FACT: RL Stine was an OSU alum like myself, and was known, both there and in his days at MAD Magazine, as “Jovial Bob Stine.”
The first, a longer short story, is called “Good Creatures, Small Things,” and is chock full of strange creatures in the Appalachian woods, and–sorry, narrative purists–it goes backwards. Fun!
The last two (about halfway in) are short-shorts: “Her Honeymoon,” featuring a jealous telekinetic lover, and “The Nursemaids,” a study in infant vampirism and its effects on matrimony.
