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.

721: Extra Wicked Summer 2017

The Lift’s Guide, Victoria Bigglesworth-Hayes begins to question not only her existence but her purpose. Fortunately for her, there is someone else who can not only sympathize, but can help guide her through this particularly rough time in her unlife.

Bret Bouriseau grew up in a small Midwestern town along the Mississippi. As a boy, much of his free time was spent reading and drawing. Not caring for the structure of the public school system, he took his GED test in his junior year while still in high school. After receiving his diploma he promptly left, leaving his home for good shortly after turning 17.

Throughout the early ‘80’s he traveled, supporting himself with various odd jobs -including airbrush artist and carnie. In 1985 he joined the U S Navy and reported aboard the USS Enterprise visiting 14 countries before ending his tour of duty in 1989. In 1992 he discovered the wonderful world of sales, a profession that combined travel and word skills. It was a natural fit.

After running a few legit businesses Bret tried his hand at publishing an underground paper called The Spectre. He sold ads and organized party bus tours to subsidize his income. It was there he began to hone his skills in earnest.

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

An avid reader of pulp fiction, his two favorite books are Bram Stoker’s Dracula and The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

Mae March, the Mad Mistress of the Mad Marshes is the most dominant fragmentation of the already compartmentalized mind known as the Mad Marshes. The chosen name itself is little more than a quirky twist on her most beloved character from the colorful cast of a favored childhood book.

Her writing began at an early age, starting with scripts and short skits which she would enact for her ever humoring cousin, but didn't take a turn toward terror until college and life in the harshness of what most of you think is reality showed her droll the world was, and how desperately it needed a little nettling in the noggin to open it's eyes to the shadows lurking in the corners.
