Woooo! Wooooo! Wooooooo! It's that time of year again! So get ready for another Halloween Spooky Special! This year we're going back to Edgar Allen Poe with a readthrough of his short story, Hop Frog. When a vertically challenged disabled court jester gets sick and tired of being pushed around by the king, he hatches a darkly genius plan that is best summed up as "the mic drop to end all mic drops." Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

We're sorry we've been away so long! To make it up to you we're doing a super scary (and, let's be honest, super late) halloween spooky special! We're delving into the Goosebumps series to have a read through One Day At Horrorland. It's got plucky two dimensional protagonists, hilariously underused depressed green monsters and a collection of chapter ending cliffhangers to rival any American soap opera. And if all that wasn't enough the chilling tale brought back a painful memory for Dave which involves flo rida, a dark room and a man in a bear costume. Even if you haven't read the story (and I'm betting there are more than a few of you who haven't) it's still well worth a listen!

ooooOOOOOOooooh - it's a scary Shark cage special this week, as we do an all-in-one take on Stephen King's classic novella The Mist. This is weather at it's most bad-assed, containing not only chills but acid spiders, unhinged old ladies and ravenous tentacles. Surely, it's nothing to do with the mysterious government project up on the hill. Surely.

It's that time of year again! The pumpkins are carved, the trick or treaters are out in force and its time for Shark Liver Oil's Halloween Spooky Special! This year we're reading The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allen Poe - one of the classic gothic horror short stories. It's got dressing up, a spooky castle, drunken debauchery and a whole heap of dead stuff. It doesn't get much more halloweeny than that does it?
