ISeeDark Book CoverWe have news that a new book from Spanish artist Pere Ibañez will be arriving on Halloween 2015.

According to the publisher the work: “explores powerlessness, resilience in the face of challenge and the survival instincts that compel individuals to go on. The series is arranged as a narrative collection, weaving through the cycle of fall and rally. Ibañez shot the entirety of I.See.Dark in vintage black and white, inspired by classic horror films. Building on themes of folklore and witchcraft, Ibañez staged all photos outdoors, particularly in the countryside of his hometown, Barcelona.”

In addition to being published in book form, selections from the work are also being displayed in galleries. These include venues in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and also London.

Below, get just a hint of what’s in store inside:

Oh Whistle and I’ll Come to You, My Lad – An Audible Holiday Ghost Story

Posted in Uncategorized on December 1, 2014 by SidneyW

The British tradition of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve isn’t quite as well realized on the U.S. side of the pond.

Sure, about a million versions of A Christmas Carol get air time over the holidays, but otherwise it’s not really a familiar practice as we yanks gather around the fireplace on December 24.

Audible may raise a little more American awareness of holiday chills with their free holiday download of David Suchet reading “Oh Whistle and I’ll Come to You, My Lad” by M.R. James.
(A free e-text version is here.)
I like to tell my students James (1862-1936) was sort of the Stephen King of his day, offering up tales of ghosts, demons and curses set in the everyday world of his time rather than say, the Castle of Otranto.
“Oh Whistle” from 1904 provides a great taste of James with building mystery and menace. Suchet’s most famous for his Hercule Poirot portrayal of course, but it’s his more natural British voice and not his affected Belgian accent here.


Assuming multiple characters while narrating, he seems the perfect voice for a James story. If you can settle back and shut out the world around you, he’ll take you softly and subtly along with young Professor Parkins.
At the request of a fellow teacher, Parkins agrees to inspect local ruins in the little seaside town of Burnstow, where he takes a room at the Globe Inn, in spite of warnings that ghosts might be about.


He makes interesting discoveries as he prowls the ruins and grows more engrossed in historic finds. Of course he finds a whistle.
What happens when you blow an ancient whistle? If you listen carefully and with imagination unleashed, you’ll scary things.
Happily this is just one of several recordings of Suchet reading James.
Great tales including “The Ash Tree” and “Casting the Runes,” basis for the classic Night of the Demon, are also on hand.
Get into the holiday spirit with a listen, and for more on the Victorian ghost traditions check out this Guardian article.

Released in four parts beginning in July 2014, “Sleepers” is now available in its entirety on Paper Tape. The tale follows Aubrey Slater, a finder who seeks out rare objects for a antiques clearing house that sells to top dollar collectors.

Fear on Demand 13 – The Stick Man by Amir Amed

Posted in fear-on-demand-podcast, Uncategorized on March 30, 2014 by SidneyW

Welcome to Episode 13 of Fear of Demand featuring a short story by Amir Amed.

Read by Sam Chin

Two middle school boys pass on a game of Skyrim to explore strange territory and get a look at the mysterious figure known was The Stick Man…

TJ brought it up after school, whispering as we crossed the street and left Queenston Elementary’s car-clogged pick-up loop behind us.

“Do you want to see the Stick Man?”

We turned away from Queenston Drive, where Queenston Elementary squatted like a long, brown-brick nightmare, and crossed onto Erindale Road. We were the only walkers; all the other kids either got picked up, or left on the school bus.

This episode also includes a brief excerpt from The Holy Terror By Wayne Allen Sallee
