Tales from the Black Vault: A Lovecraft Radio Drama Podcast

Austinites are fucking with the elder gods for the World Wide Web.

It's beginning to look a lot like Arkham …
It's beginning to look a lot like Arkham …

Cthulhu? Fhtagn.

Which is to say, we're suckers for anything eldritch and cthonic and likely to have consorted, in the dim past, with a wayward Whateley relative or two.

Which is why we're excited to see this project gaining momentum via Kickstarter, this podcast series of improvised Lovecraft stories, soon to be brought to tech-enhanced and ichor-dripping life by Marc Majcher and his cohort from the recent Black Vault show at The Hideout Theatre.

Time to add a local polyp to the vastening Howard Phillips Lovecraft mythological body – beyond what tenuous connection that Tentacle Fence on Koenig might already suggest.

Time to pay new homage to a subset of genre fiction that the better horror writers have long respected.

Time to shamble in some doorways, lurk an occasional threshold, and unleash upon the helpless human world a horde of non-Euclidean terrors from beyond time and space. (Note: No, we don't mean Republicans.)

And we'll see you, friend, somewhere between this world and the insanity soon to come.
