The Once & Future Podcast Haunted Halloween Special Features Favorite Authors Reading Their Favorite Seasonal Tales

I've been a busy little bee spooking it up for the haunted holiday season, and here are all the details that will bring you almost 2 hours of awesome story goodness!

(USA, NY, NY) - Speculative fiction author Anton Strout announces a very special haunted episode of The Once & Future Podcast- a new weekly book-centric podcast focused on all things fantasy and science fiction. Episode 7, posting on Monday, October 24th, promises hours of dark and creepy tales of the season, including many of them read by the authors themselves.

“I love the Fall,” says Strout, host and curator of content for the show. “I always have. The change of seasons where everything is slowly dying, a chill filling the air, and all the horrors that are associated with one of my favorite holidays, Halloween. To help celebrate, I’ve invited some of my most ghoulish and delightful author friends to join in this danse macabre and regale us with stories inspired by their darker nature. Being the twisted little creators they are, they happily agreed, some of them cackling with evil glee pouring forth from their little black hearts, bless ‘em.”

The podcast will feature essays and tales surrounding the Halloween spirit by: Amber Benson (Death’s Daughter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Ghosts of Albion), Jennifer Brozek (Grant’s Pass, Shanghai Vampocalypse), Rachel Caine (The Morganville Vampires, Working Stiff), Christopher Golden (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hellboy, Ghosts of Albion), Heather Graham (Harrison/Krewe of Hunters series), Nalo Hopkinson (Skin Folk, The New Moon’s Arms), Jonathan Maberry (Dead of Night, Patient Zero, Marvel Zombies Return), and Tim Waggoner (Nekropolis, Ghost Trackers).
