Episode 028 – Spookatorium
As mentioned in a previous post, I started working to relaunch my old podcast recently. Last night the first new episode in three years went live.
In this episode we look at Cotard’s Syndrome a psychological affliction where the sufferer believes themselves to be dead, missing organs or simple non-existent. We’ve got some publishing news from Gray Friar Press, Dark Regions Press, Tartarus Press and the new Phantasmagoria Journal. Then it’s into the catacombs beneath Paris, and a secret workshop in the dome of the Pantheon with UX and arguably secret society urban explorers and preservationists.
Author Richard Gavin speaks on the ideas behind his bleak tale In The Shadow Of The Nodding God from his collection Omens published by Mythos Books, and gives a reading of his vignette Notes On The Aztec Death Whistle. In addition to Omens, Richard has two other collections of short stories available – Charnel Wine & The Darkly Splendid Realm are available from Dark Regions Press.

Professor Gruntsplatter’s Spookatorium 027
I spent yesterday re-animating the old Spookatorium Podcast site. I produced 26 episode of this from 9/06 – 10/08. I had been thinking a lot lately about bringing it back and now there it is.
I’m still formulating the first new episode, but in addition to what the show was, I’m looking to incorporate some of the authors and stories that have come to mean so much to me. We’ll see how it shakes out. The plan is to set a more realistic schedule. The last time I did this I started out weekly, it was too much. This incarnation will likely just be a monthly show.The feed is in place now to listen to the archived shows. Once I have the new content up I’ll hassle with getting it on iTunes. Stay tuned.
