Griswell and his friend Branner take refuge in an old plantation farmhouse off the main road. During the night, Griswell awakens to a shrill whistling from the staircase. Branner gets up to investigate and a few seconds later returns, headless and holding a bloody axe… This week’s ghostly story is part one of Robert E Howard’s Pigeons from Hell.

(This is completely unabridged. You're welcome.)

Music: The Dread by Kevin MacLeod

We want your true stories for our True Tales to Tell in the Dark portion of the podcast that will begin in March. What kind of true stories? Anything creepy, dark, haunting… write about the haunted house you used to live in, your UFO sighting, your creepy doll, or experience with a clown. Tell me how you were almost abducted on the side of a lonely highway when your car broke down, or tell me about the strange sound a beast made out in the woods that you couldn’t tell if was human or something else… just make sure it is true! Please send your true story within the body of the email to with TRUE TALE in the subject line. Please give me your first name and the state you live in (if in US) or country you live in if outside the US—or remain completely anonymous. It's up to you. If you’d like more details go to HERE.
