The darkness is oppressive this time of the season, and horror authors T. Fox Dunham & Phil Thomas return with episode 27 to explore the long nights, providing you some entertainment to get you through the cold season. They bring you a mix of #ghost stories, banter, film crafting and dark fiction drawn from all over the space-time continuum. And more Clown News!

emp-curious-goodsAfter talking some cultural philosophy about the coming winter holidays—Halfway Out of the Dark—they open the show with another true ghost story told to them by Doctor Berrett Ravenhearst from Jim Thorpe, PA as part of their new segment, ghost stories of Jim Thorpe. Fox spent the summer collecting #paranormal experiences from the small mining town in the mountains of Pennsylvania. Crossed Connections, narrated by British folksinger David Walton is another story of the dead reaching out through the phone in a series of supernatural connections or coincidences. You decide.

Phil Thomas talks film making and crafting as he overcomes common problems facing #indie #filmmakers who do not have the resources of corporate studios yet want to produce professional movies. He’s working on the final edits of the short film, A Short Term Effect, soon to be released.

They also talk about their new line of t-shirts available through TeePublic. Phil & Fox have brought in several depraved horror artists to create new designs. They’re available here for purchase along with other items such as mugs, laptop cases, cats. Would you eat What Are You Afraid Of? cereal? The hosts discuss the possibility—better with bat’s blood, not milk.

What Are You Afraid Of?


Scottish & Canadian blues artist Wily Bo Walker returns with a new song from a collaboration with The Rattlin’ Bone Theatre Show—another dark R&B dirge called ‘Shoot Me Down.’

They close the show with another reading from the KGB Club in Greenwich Village, The Dark Ones Rise—a special recorded on location hosted by T. Fox Dunham to soon be featured through the podcast. Fox reads his potent tale of a Nazi commander hunting the last elf to cure the world of false hope, a story based on Fox’s survivor’s guilt after surviving a rare lymphoma. The Last Elf.

FANGORIA gives MERCY 3.5 out 4 Skulls – “Dunham has channeled his many brushes with the other side into the exquisitely rendered, lyrical supernatural hospital thriller MERCY.READ FULL REVIEW HERE.



Author Tim Waggoner

Part medical horror, part supernatural suspense, MERCY is a hard-hitting fever dream of a novel. I enjoyed the hell out of it!” ~ Tim Waggoner, author of The Way of All Flesh and Eat The Night


Author David Dunwoody

Pain and poetry flow in equal measure through these pages. Dunham’s prose strikes deep and hits all the right notes. MERCY is unforgettably vivid.” ~ David Dunwoody, author of Hell Walks and The 3 Egos

William Saint is dying of cancer. On most days death seems like a humane alternative to the treatment. Stricken with fever, William is rushed to Mercy—notorious as a place to send the sickest of the poor and uninsured to be forgotten—and finds the hospital in even worse condition than his previous visit. The grounds are unkempt, the foundation is cracking, and like the wild mushrooms sprouting from fissures of decay around it, something is growing inside the hospital. Something dark. It’s feeding on the sickness and sustaining itself on the staff, changing them. And now it wants Willie.

This was my death.

Life is an addiction.

Love is the only force that is real.

Read . . . and understand what I saw. I put it in metaphor. You do not understand what you do not
