It wouldn’t be Christmas around here without a showing from the Royal Occultist. This year, rather than a free story, I’ve gone one better. The long promised audio version of “Iron Bells”, as performed by Richard Gough-Thomas (Charles St. Cyprian) and Ruth Narramore (Ebe Gallowglass) has finally arrived, just in time for some holiday listening.
You can listen to “The Royal Occultist: Iron Bells” below, or download it, as well as the previous audio adventure, “The Royal Occultist: Case Files”, for free from https://royaloccultist.bandcamp.com/ You can also drop a bit of money, if you like, which is always appreciated these days.
And if you’re still in the mood for some horrific holiday tales, why not check out the free-to-download digital collection, The Royal Occultist: Haunted Holidays? It includes several fan-favourite stories, including “Krampusnacht” and “The Dreaming Dead”, as well as a wonderfully pulpy cover by MD Jackson.
