This week has seen a bunch of Gothic audio goodies on the web.
Librivox offers a second collection of scary short stories, drawn, as ever, from the public domain, and read by enthusiastic volunteers.
Pseudopod keeps churning out horror audio, including a sad, beautiful flash piece called "Rite of Atonement", and a powerful, carefully wrought war Gothic, "Western Front." The latter is thought to be pervasive, but is actually rare, and rarer still done well.
Meanwhile, Tales of Horror continues its archival romp through the golden age of radio. You can sample "The Grave," a twisted, gore-free mind game about murder, guilt, and secrets. They also published Peter Cushing's reading of The Legend of the Golden Vampires, an enthusiastic mix of Stoker's Dracula, bravura orientalism, and steady violence. Also from the archives is a version of Ambrose Bierce's "Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge," via ClassicRadioDrama.
