Weird.....good,but weird.

Yes, a strange and slightly creepy story.

The Fleming's are a young couple who have moved west in the mid-1800's so the young man can be the town doctor for a small town. When they arrive, it has been arranged for them to live in a large old house that will be part home/part hospital. Just as quickly they start to have supernatural problems related to the house and a mystery will have to be unraveled. Reply With Quote

A young country doctor and his wife confront a ghost in their new home. An old, ornate music box is their only clue as to the ghost's identity.

I'll have to get back to this one... Digital glitching makes it unplayable on my portable.

A couple move to a small town where he will serve as a doctor. They are both welcomed and warned away. They find a music box that, when played, seems to conjure a spirit from the past. Hard to make out the real plot of the story because of the skipping and digital blips in my copy of the file.

This is a very good episode in the haunted house genre, with a little twist at the end. I have been listening to author Ian Martins episodes which I enjoy very much and I thank the Website owners for allowing search by author. Before the great author Ian Martin, I previously was listening to author Elspith Eric's episodes, as well as episodes by Nancy Moore and Henry Slesar, Bob Juhren, and Sam Dann. In this episode I was so happy to hear Jada Rowland who has a very pleasant voice. I find that I cannot listen to episodes where the actress's voice sounds older than her characters age. This is why I skip Mercedes McCambridge episodes. Thank you of course to the late Himan Brown for making this all possible!
