Let’s REWIND! From Season Two comes a remastered version of Lydia Peever’s chilling tale “Bad Shepherd.” In this week’s story, we meet Laurel; a sweet girl who grows up to be a “Demon Whisperer.” This story is in the collection available on Amazon, Pray Lied Eve: Short Tales of the Untoward!
Just for extra fun, our rewinds feature an opening that pays homage to classic shows from The Golden Age of Radio that inspired The Wicked Library.
About the Author:
Lydia Peever is a horror author and journalist from Ontario, Canada. She is a big fan of horror music, books and film–so anywhere there is blood, you will probably find her lurking somewhere in the corner.
Her short stories have appeared in Postscripts To Darkness, Dark Moon Digest, For When The Veil Drops and her small collection, Pray Lied Eve. The follow up to her first novel Nightface has been written.
In her spare time, she helps update the new releases section of the Horror Writers Association website, photographs zombie walks or bloody punk rock bands, and records a few podcasts.
About the Artist:
Steven Matiko is a talented artist who enjoys horror and dark fiction. Many pieces of his work can be found on the 9th Story Website. Steve is also a musician and his original music is often featured on the 9th Story.
