It’s summertime and we’re looking for a few good columnists for our audio series, Summer Screams. All summer long, starting this Friday with the famous War of the Worlds broadcast, we’ll be posting reviews and articles about audio horror fiction (not music): dramatisations of short stories like The Twilight Zone, old-time radio shows like CBS Mystery Theater and Lights Out, or even podcasts about horror.
