Strange Fiction

29 - "The Doll Named Lil' Nancy"

A harrowing disaster means David and guests Beth Morton and Skill Flea are forced to recover from a lost recording by reading a haunted doll story, pulled at random from the depths of the Creepypasta Wiki. Will this make up for that time?

Skill Flea’s Scare My Friends Writing Challenge ends December 23rd.

23 - "The Russian Sleep Experiment"

The experiment of revisiting old Midnight Marinara stories continues, this time with David and Slimebeast as the test subjects. Together they go over the empirical data surrounding this popular Creepypasta from the early days of the genre, and see if it still holds up.

22 - "The Art of Jacob Emory"

David invites Seid and Raevell of The Witching Hour back to discuss the piece that inspired Midnight Marinara's 2nd episode, the tale of a troubled artist and a very weird town. Is the story a true work of art, or did it take a remix from the Pasta Shade to turn a troubled tale into a gallery display?

21 - "Just Telling Stories"

With Midnight Marinara's 5th anniversary on the horizon, David introduces a new segment looking back at the stories that were adapted into audio drama. Does the source material for the first episode still hold up on its own? David and Kaela check in to find out.

"Just Telling Stories" was written by Karl Drinkwater. The version read here was originally posted on Creepypasta.com and is now removed. An updated version, along with several other short stories by Karl, can be found in his short story collection They Move Below here.

13 - "The Book of the Ravenous" (Midsummer Scream 2018)

Our 13th episode in the new run (and 195th episode overall) features the Creative Horror Crew all together in the aftermath of Midsummer Scream, reading a story they started to cover at the Midnight Marinara panel the day before! David, Kaela, Allen, Seid, Abysmii, Papreeka and Matt Holley (with special guest appearances by Gracey) wonder: is this verbose tale of a creepy cookbook worth the effort to finish?

"The Book of the Ravenous" is credited to William Buckley. Read along here.

05 - "Midnight Train"

David, Allen and Kaela get an express ticket to more human horrors in this story of a man's life, his near-death experience at the hands of an abusive father, and an encounter with a supernatural steam engine. Will the story make it to the end of the line intact, or will it lose its passengers along the way?

"Midnight Train" is credited to Black goes gray. Read along here.

02 - "The Seer of Possibilities"

David and Allen tend to see one outcome for many of the stories they read, but the possibility that they will be pleasantly surprised always persists. Will this story of an average Joe's gradual moral decay at the hands of a sinister entity be a good read, or has that possibility been ruled out?
