  1. I like E. Hoffmann Price’s stories a lot. Especialy the Cthulhu/Lovecraft orientated stories and the Weird Tales/Horror stories. Great stuff, can’t wait for the next. Wish you guy’s would tell a story every night, or at least twice a week, but I’ll surely stay tuned……for the next creepy tale…
    I don’t know if it will work but there is a nice story by Clark Ashton Smith, Mother of Toads.

    But if it doesn’t work here is the Link to the Page.
    Scroll down to Mother of Toads and click on MP3.
    Regards and have funn,

  2. I tried the first link and it works,…Cool.
    Now I can give more links to stories in the same genres.
    Thumbs up for PPP.

  3. I can neither confirm nor deny our strong interest in Clark Ashton Smith, and particularly, that story. 🙂
