Voltaire H.

Wonder if the secretary was named Underwood because of the brand of typewriter????

Ellen

They way Tammy Grimes said "I didn't do it" cracked me up every time- it was so perfect for the character. Great story!

Celena

Another tale of an author struggling with his fictional character. See also "Three Women" (with Clarissa) and "The Left Hand of God" (with Mark Twain). Even Maupassant's "The Horla" plays with the trope.

Karen

This was a great story! LOL. As writer, I can really relate to the characters taking over! Celena is right about "I didn't do it." *gigglesnorts*

Pamela

“I didn’t do it” LMAO

Charlie

I hear E.G. Marshall introduce the story as "The God Killers" (plural). Was she trying to sound creepy the way she kept saying "I didn't do it" ? Great story!

Jeffrey

The way the voice actors really dig in to their characters feelings and emotions can be heard in their lines. 100% believable story as the characters tones flow and are in sync with their lines. Definitely one of my favorites.

Micha

"I didn't do it" "I didn't do it" "I didn't do it" "I, I didn't do it" the last 4 sounded the best at the end... Leon sounded like he really enjoyed his part and on a side note when will they put a picture of the adult Leon Janney up instead of when he was a child actor which is (Janney as Spud in Bear Shooters (1930)
