THE WIND by Ray Bradbury
The calls are coming more frequently, now. An explorer finds himself stalked by a sentient wind. And this wind is very, very hungry.
THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO by Edgar Allan Poe
Poe’s classic tale of the ultimate revenge… and DIY masonry.
THE TELL-TALE HEART by Edgar Allan Poe
A modern re-telling of Poe’s tale of paranoia, murder, guilt, and those sounds coming from beneath the floorboards.
A CABIN IN THE WOODS by Clay T. Graybeal*
Shhh… the walls have ears. And more.
THE FLOODGATES OF WILLOWHILL by Mary SanGiovanni
Samantha lives in the land beyond the borders of Faulkesville, where apple blossoms fill in the air, kids still play on the tire swing near the lake, and an evil no one speaks of lives at the edge of town.
THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH by Edgar Allan Poe
A decidedly different take on Poe’s allegory of privilege and the plague. This party is seen from the point of view of the evening’s entertainment.
