In the last show before Christmas, Mr Jim Moon invites you to the cosy fireside of the Great Library of Dreams to hear of the most unusual and eerie events that occurred several years ago one snowy Christmas Eve...
The Great Library of Dreams is proud to present a special Christmas gift for you - a complete and unabridged reading of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens! Read by Mr Jim Moon with music from the Eldritch Light Orchestra
Following on from our reading of the classic tale from MR James, in this episode we take a look back on the 1972 screen version directed by Lawrence Gordon Clark for the BBC A Ghost Story for Christmas series, starring Peter Vaughan and Clive Swift.
In this podcast we plumb the depths of festive film and look at the cat-astrophic Santa Claws from 2014. Can cute kittens save Christmas or will we end up looking for a brick, a sack and an icy canal? To subscribe to Commentary Club go here - COMMENTARY CLUB 021 - Santa Claws
As regular listeners know, I do occasional like to spin a spooky yarn or two, a little while ago I was asked if I would like to contribute a tale to a new collection of horror stories. Naturally I jumped at the chance, and now the book is finally in the shops!
It features mostly work by new writers but also including a couple of old masters in there too - in particular I'm am delighted to see Adrian Cole's classic British Cthulhu Mythos tale get a long overdue reprinting here! The full contents list is as follows -
Grave Warnings by Marc Damian Lawler
Red Eye to Nightfolk by A.P. Sessler
Fear Makes Good Materialists by Lamuel Caleb Gonzalez

In this last show before the festive season Mr Jim Moon takes a quick spoiler-free look at two new notable horror movies - Mike Flanagan's movie of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep and the Soska Sisters' remake of David Cronenberg's Rabid!
I've just opened a brand new section in the Great Library of Dreams devoted to The Box of Delights in all its incarnations. Here you will find writings and podcasts covering the original book by John Masefield, the well-loved TV series, plus details of all its various radio incarnations too!
