Schloss Frankenstein is haunted by a Monster. Through countless movies and one immortal book, he has stalked its halls and hidden passages. And the Hero has always arisen to protect the Maiden from the Monster’s misdirected love.
But Darkness can hide Heros and Monsters can walk in the Light.
And sometimes not even the Maiden can tell them apart.

Moreau, misunderstood and hounded by the London medical community, retreats to a Pacific island to continue his experiments. The goal: Nothing less than to surgically rebuild animals into the shape of men — and to teach them the meaning of humanity.
What is the law? Not to eat flesh or fish, that is the law; are we not men? What is the law? Not to chase other men, that is the law; are we not men?
As castaway Edward Prendick learns, Moreau is a feared, wrathful “god” to his beastmen. And in comparing Moreau to his lumbering, gentle servant M’Ling, it is sometimes difficult to tell which is the man, and which is the beast.
Wells’ classic shocker raises the question of what it means to be human. “Pain… is such a little thing…”
Herbert George Wells is perhaps best known for his groundbreaking science fiction (The Time Machine) and social commentary (The Shape of Things to Come), but his place in horror fiction is assured by the novella The Island of Doctor Moreau. Edward Prendick is adrift on a weathered lifeboat when he is rescued, reluctantly, by Dr Moreau. Moreau is returning to his remote island laboratory with a shipload of animals, source material for his greatest challenge; surgically rebuilding animals into human form. To Prendick’s astonishment and horror, Moreau is well along in his work, and the beast-men are already displaying intelligence and language skills. “Are we not men?” reads the beast-men’s catechism, and the answer is not obvious.

There is a river that flows through the misty landscape of imagination, seeping up through the rocky earth high in the Appalachian Mountains. It winds southward through the foothills and the piedmont: It tumbles past the fall line, widens and deepens, and then meanders across the coastal plain until it finally reaches the gulf of Mexico.
And all along its length the great river inspires stories to tease listeners into wonder, or send a shiver down their spines.
These are the tales from the Dark River.
For the first time, hear original stories created by Dark River Writers, Atlanta’s professional association of fantasy, horror, science fiction and mystery authors.
This collection is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Thomas E. Fuller, a longtime member of the group, and the one who gave us our name.
Once there was a traveling salesman, a Man Who Traveled in Elephants.
Delapore. A name with a history. A history of unspeakable atrocity; a history of black arts; a history of hatred, and terror. Delapore. It’s just a name, now. In this case, it is the name of a man returning to England to reclaim the lands of his family. The name of a man who knows the skeletons in his family’s closet — or so he thinks. Delapore. Surely it is possible to outlive the past. Surely it is possible to outrun one’s ancestors, to outrun history — to outrun fate. Surely a man’s destiny lies in his own hands, and not in the misdeeds of men a hundred generations dead. Beware, England. The last Delapore has come home.
A moment of drunken disrespect sets the stage for the battle for the soul of a man in this Rudyard Kipling classic!
It is the habit of military men to write memoirs, a habit that reached it’s peak during Victoria’s reign, that High Noon of Empire. Over one third of the world owed it’s allegiance to the Widow of Windsor and her sons dutifully returned to her after their tours of duty, armed with pen and ink to record their experiences. The bright light of England was everywhere — but light casts shadows and in shadows strange things breed. Colonel Horatio Fitzwilliams, late of Her Majesty’s Armies in India, chose to tell of those shadows and one man who delved into them.
Doctor Geoffry Stanhope, Investigator of Occult Phenomena. Reminiscences from the Memoirs of Colonel Horatio Fitzwilliams, British India Army, Retired.
In this episode: The Loch Ness Monster is only a story, isn’t it? Dr. Stanhope and Colonel Fizwilliams investigate!
