This week, I finalized the schedule for the second season of Tales Told When the Windows Rattle. It’s a very ghostly season that will take listeners through several haunted houses, along a few stretches of haunted railroad, and backstage at a haunted theater. We’ll even meet a haunted escape artist. Here’s the itinerary:
October 21: A Victorian Ghost Hunt (Catherine Crowe)
October 28: “A Case of Eavesdropping” (Algernon Blackwood)
November 4: “At Ravenholme Junction” (Anonymous)
November 11: “The Ghost of Banquo’s Ghost” (Tim Prasil)
November 18: “The Story of the Green House, Wallington” (Allan Upward)
November 25: Another Victorian Ghost Hunt (James John Hissey)
December 2: “Under the Sheer Legs” (Henry Tinson)
December 9: “A Pot of Tulips” (Fitz-James O’Brien)
December 16: “Houdini Slept Here” (Tim Prasil)
December 23: “The Signal-Man” (Charles Dickens)
You see that I scheduled a spooky story by Blackwood for the weekend before Halloween — and a creepy story by Dickens for the weekend of Christmas. It just seemed right!
