732: Extra Wicked Halloween 2017

This week, thanks to our Patreon supporters we’ve pulled the desiccated corpses of three lost tales from the ether of Season One, and completely resurrected them, with new voices, new music and propped them up for you to enjoy. As an added bit of fun, Nelson W. Pyles, the creator and and original host / storyteller of the show, is in the studio to help introduce the stories.

719: Dead Man’s Caul – by Jessica McHugh

Jessica McHugh returns with a new wicked story narrated by Nelson W. Pyles. In this dark tale, a sailor looking for the way out of his predicament makes a deal with an old woman. Who comes out the better in the end?

711: Five Deathly Tales – A Wicked Collection

This week we have five short deathly tales, by five Wicked writers. Enjoy this week’s selected tales:

“One Hour” by Dene Bebbington, “A Lament from the Dying” by Keith McDuffee, “The Heart of a Madman” by Gwendolyn Kiste, “Playground Zero” by Jessica McHugh, and “Last Steps” by Kelli Perkins.

KT Jayne asks: Do you know what to do in case of zombie apocalypse? How about when surrounded by a mad horde of Doctor Who fangirls? What if the Mothman invades your town? What if aliens land and start shooting up the place? Lucky for you that you have met KT Jayne. She knows exactly what to do if any of these things happen. She should, she’s spent her entire life obsessing about all these “what ifs” and more. Lucky for you, too, she has Asperger’s and with her out of the box thinking and whiz kid know how, she might just save your skin. Or your soul. Grab your shovel of death and prepare to face whatever form the apocalypse will take. Or just stand behind her. She’ll figure it out. No matter how the apocalypse manifests, KT Jayne does not die at the end.

KT Jayne lives in a small town of central Indiana waiting patiently for the Apocalypse to come.

Both an artist and writer, Bret acknowledges painter and cover artist Frank Frazetta as his biggest single artistic influence. His personal style is more akin to Maxfield Parrish
