We find Smith back on form with two cracking stories. Beginning with The Necromantic Tale, we talk gothic tropes, witch trials, MR James, demons and disappointment rooms.
Then it's a trip to Venus for The Immeasurable Horror. We talk shoggoths, red shirts, Venusian sci fi and Poddy Fronds. Plus listener feedback and news of the forthcoming Innsmouth Literary Festival.
