Horror thrives in the imagination, a fact that that Tales from the Dark River, an eerie collection of original stories by Atlanta’s Dark River Writers association, plays off to great effect. Perfectly embodying the darkly introspective qualities of Southern Gothic storytelling, these tales take on personality with a theatrical, folksy narration by several talented members of the award-winning Atlanta Radio Theater Company, punctuated by mood-setting musical interludes of harmonica and acoustic guitar. Alternately lulling and chilling, this dramatic recording evokes the best of spooky campfire storytelling.
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.
