Suspense story about my creepy pantry

The Book

Hans Anderson

Default-piece-image-0 Not broadcast, experimental fiction. I am not sure if this belongs on public radio at all. You tell me. I have found my voice heading in this direction, short fictional audio, and I find that this sounds very un-PR. I'd love to get this aired, but realistically... who could play something like this? What show exists? For more information and conversation, visit this feature on Transom.org.

I woke up from a nap one day having had a major nightmare; that doesn't usually happen but as I lay there, groggy, I thought, "hey, that'd be a great story!" and I jumped up and wrote it.  Having said that, as is usual when recounting a dream, the more I wrote the less sense my dream made.  What finished off was pretty good, made better by a friend who listened to it for me, and said right in the middle his cat jumped off the couch behind him and he whirled around in a panic.  Nice.

!!

I heard this on Love + Radio and I had to find out more about this guy. He tells the story in such a way that it is believable, up to almost the very end. He feeds you small amounts of information to make it particularly scary. Good stuff!

Excellent!

Great story, we hear the evolution of the narrator, leaving us with just enough ambiguity, just enough "OMG!" and just enough understanding to really get the creeps!

Wicked cool; compelling!

loved it! simple, direct with enough ambiguity and thoughtful details left to ones own mind and ones vivid imagination to make it; well... creepy!
