The Best of Pseudopod 2012

written by David Steffen

Not too much to say in preamble to this list. Pseudopod is awesome as ever. You should listen to the show. Here’s some of my favorites that you can check out.

1. The Crawlspace by Russell Bradbury-Carlin
I couldn’t tell throughout this story where it was going, which is hard to find these days. Creepy, compelling, good stuff.

2. Just Outside Our Windows, Deep Inside Our Walls by Brian Hodge
I’m not sure if this story is sweet or creepy, but I like it.

3. Pumpkinhead by Rajan Khanna
Oz-based horror story from the anthology “Shadows of the Emerald City” anthology of Oz-based horror stories.

4. Kill Screen by Chris Lewis Carter
Fun horror story that appeals to my love of retro video games.

5. That Ol Dagon Dark by Robert MacAnthony
Evil tobacco. Nuff said.

6. The Meat Forest by John Haggerty
Carnivorous forest in the heart of politically torn Russia.

Honorable Mentions:

The Orchard of Hanging Trees by Nicole Cushing

The Dark and What it Said by Rick Kennett

Dancing by Donna Glee Williams
