We are in the final stages of postproduction for The Hunchback of Notre Dame. We’re working on nailing down the original introduction from Annie Sargent, and putting the final spit and polish on the files. It should be worth the wait!

Be sure to keep your subscription current, as I’ll be sending the entire audiobook to all current supporters.

We dropped the show a day early so that you can still have a scary story to keep you company this Halloween. App users can discover The Screaming Skull, by F. Marion Crawford in their special features. Marcus Aurelius will continue in November.

And now, The Ebony Frame, by Edith Nesbit
