The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program will return next week as things heat up for the half-pints in Howling House. But don’t you worry for an instant that this Samhain season will be short on spookings - if you crave tricks and treats, we'll fill your bag to the brim with "Haunters in the Dark" our spotlight on some of our favorite horror stories. In this installment we're sharing a tale from the anthology series, Someone Dies in This Elevator: "South of Palenque" where we learn that some stone doors aren't meant to be opened, and some ropes aren't meant to be pulled…

But first, let our narrator fill you in on the latest news from Mystery Program and our crowdfunding campaign to produce our next season: "The Case of the Penumbral Gate". Help us build our fearsome future fictions at and indulge in an exclusive emporium of items and experiences that both enhance your pledge power and your arcane abilities.

Content Warning: This episode contains racism in academia, the consequences of genocidal colonization, and death in an elevator.
