Our last (official) #AllHallowsRead tale is “The Pale Man,” by Julius Long. A lonely man visiting a country hotel finds himself pondering a strange guest down the hall, one that keeps changing rooms and moving closer and closer.

Continuing our theme of stories from the Weird Tales magazine published in the mid-twentieth century, we share “Four Wooden Stakes,” by Victor Rowan. This #AllHallowsRead raises the dead as two old friends fight for their lives against a creature of the night.
We begin our annual #AllHallowsRead episode series with “The Night Wire,” by H.F. Arnold. Our theme this year will be stories from the American horror/sci-fi magazine, Weird Tales, which published from the 1920s to the 1950s. This story features a very creepy fog and a very creeped-out telegraph operator.
