It was the audio sample that sold me on Dr. Yen Sin. I thought Mr. Gwynne’s narration was great.

Please send me a complimentary e-copy of Spider #11 and keep up the excellent work. I really enjoy your virtually endless selection of great Old Time Radio shows!
I’ve been buying ebooks produced by your company for quite a while now and have always been impressed with what I’ve received.
It was a VERY pleasant surprise that greeted my eyes when I checked the most recent ‘pulp’ Kindle books on Amazon today and saw that you guys have released over half a dozen collections from the rare ‘Terror Tales’ magazine! I immediately bought all of them except the Hugh B. Cave collection (Being a big Cave fan I already have all of the stories in that collection).
THANK YOU VERY MUCH for releasing these! We horror fans are STARVING for these fun, wild and fast-paced stories!
The formatting is very nice and the Table of Contents are great with links for every chapter of every story. I’m glad you guys have done just as fine of job with these collections as you have with your other excellent ebooks.
PLEASE RELEASE MORE of these fascinating ‘weird menace’ / ‘shudder pulps’! It would be a dream come true to be able to see all (or even most) of the short stories from ‘Terror Tales’ as well as the other 2 essential terror titles like ‘Horror Stories’ and ‘Dime Mystery Magazine’.
My friend and I were having a bit of a contentious debate as to whether you have the resources to procure and release most (if not all) of the issues or short stories from the ‘Horror Stories’ or ‘Dime Mystery Magazine’ pulps (also produced by ‘Terror Tales’ creators Popular Publications).
As you may already know ‘Horror Stories’ and ‘Dime Mystery Magazine’ issues are EXTREMELY rare and my buddy thinks even you guys couldn’t find enough of them to release substantial collections but I disagreed with him and said that you are the most organized and sophisticated of the pulp companies on the planet and that I think you guys could actually pull it off if you decided to do so.
I’m not sure how big the market is for ‘weird menace’ pulps but since even beat up copies of the original issues go for hundreds of dollars these days and good condition copies are some of the most expensive on the market (and recent write-ups in prominent horror magazines / sites have no doubt sparked interest among the younger generations) I suspect you guys could make pretty good money if you were able to release story collections (or better yet, entire issues) from ‘Horror Stories’ or ‘Dime Mystery Magazine’.
What are the chances of these 2 titles being released by Radio Archives and do you plan to release more collections from ‘Terror Tales’? I’m developing on a blog site that will prominently feature articles about the ‘Weird Menace’ pulps and would be glad to post links to your ebooks so that people can know where to get them.
Also, at the end of Will Murray’s introduction for the ‘Terror Tales’ collections there is mention of an ‘audio’ version of Terror Tales from your company which I find to be especially intriguing.
None of them are listed on the site (as far as I can see) so I assume they haven’t been released yet. Are you planning on adding them in the near future?
Thanks again for releasing these incredibly rare stories for the world to see! For far too long literary historians have overlooked this fertile albeit lurid subgenre but the authors were better than the reputation of the subject matter and their work deserves to be seen so that the record can be set straight about the strength of the horror stories from the 30s.
I’m spreading the word!
Thanks and Take Care
