SPOOKTOBER DAY THIRTY-ONE
welcome to my spooktober audio advent calendar, where, each day during the month of spooktober, i will be celebrating by listening to a free audio short from nightfire’s Come Join Us by the Fire series, and you can join ME by following the links. let’s all be scared together!
so many halloweeny feelings right now!
this was a great story to end my spooktober audio project: very creepy, very ambiguous, very much leaving me wanting more. i’m hoping that when i finally get around to watching antlers, which is what this story grew up to be, i will like it every bit as much as this story.
fun fact: nick antosca was one of the first people i interacted with here on goodreads that i didn’t already know in the real world. ’twas a long time ago and he’s all big time now and prolly doesn’t remember me, but i ‘attaboy!’ him every time i see his name on my teevee screen.
anyway, happy october 31st! enjoy yer candy!
