It’s tough to sell something that is expensive to produce, but available for free.

Over the years, I’ve tried a lot of things, and I’ve tried to keep the podcast free from gratuitous advertisements. I know it might work with other shows, but I’ve always shied away from putting ads in the middle of the episode, or pelting you with a ton of ads at the beginning or end. Once the story starts, I want to keep you in the moment. This is the only way we raise funds to keep the show rolling. And you get so much in return. So, if you enjoy the podcast, please step up and support it. It’s a great feeling and it’s a terrific value. Thank you for your support.

H.P. Lovecraft revered Algernon Blackwood as one of his masters. Blackwood has an uncanny ability to point out “the overtones of strangeness in ordinary things and experiences.” We get a sense of this dissection of ordinary things in our first story, “The Return”. In “The Second Generation”, the building blocks of the story are delivered in a simple yet masterful way. I hope you enjoy it.

And now, “The Return” and “The Second Generation”, by Algernon Blackwood.
