The Resonator by Steve Maschuck

Here’s some Halloween fun for your earholes!

Recently I performed a reading of H.P. Lovecraft’s “From Beyond” on The Drunken Odyssey podcast. Three other fine readers and stories by old H.P. are featured as well.

I am the final reader, but I encourage you to check out the other stories first.

H.P. Lovecraft Roundtable

Recently I returned to one of the finest literary podcasts around, The Drunken Odyssey with John King.

We talked Cthulhu mythos, Lovecraft’s work overall, as well as the tentacled monster in the middle of the room — the elements of racism and xenophobia present in his original works.

How to navigate the art and the artist? Can we? Should we?

What can be learned from all of this and how best to apply it moving forward?

Did I say anything that makes me sound smart?

Have a listen and decide for yourself!

When he was young, Ed was beaten by bullies because he couldn’t get into his locker fast enough. Goddamn combination lock.

After graduation, he enrolled in a key-making school where he learned to make a wide variety of keys – for the home, for lock boxes and safes, and even for skeletons.

He had a child. She would never suffer as he had. She would be safely surrounded by keys.

He spent the next twenty years working 16 hour days, 7 days a week. Eventually he had enough money.

He bought her a piano.

She never learned to play.

Pax Titanus only 5 bucks on Amazon. 50% off!

Word on the street is that Amazon is trying to make room and they are marking down a number of books!

My most recent, Pax Titanus, is currently half off…at $5, it’s cheaper than a fancy coffee at Starbucks.

Great time to pick it up. Buy a copy for a friend. Or enemy.

So a week or so ago, Matt de Simone and “Dr. Tom” Lucas watched a sneak preview of DC Animation’s adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s Batman: The Killing Joke. In this episode, the fellas took the time to discuss everything that went wrong.

With Suicide Squad coming out this week, Matt decided to create a “Death Pool.” Hear who The Street Shaman and Matty think bites it.

Enjoy!
