The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program will return next week, 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, The Dark Tome: "Keeper of the Dead". It's the story of a teenage girl coming of age in a strange tradition. But traditions and history can’t be taken for granted - those of us living might be surprised what we find… under the surface.
You'll also hear the latest news from Mystery Program and our crowdfunding campaign to produce our next season: "The Case of the Penumbral Gate".
