    I have a couple of librarians in my family. I love this story and I want Guillermo del Toro to make a movie of it – I feel like he’s the only director who could do the library creatures justice.

    I would like to appreciate your great contribution and the valuable services which satiates our horror fanatic desire , in addition to this I would be too happy if you expand the length of the podcast and use more British Voice actor.

      It’s always good to know people like the British contributors! It’s usually just a matter of finding stories with locations and roles that suit our voices!

      If you don’t already have a season pass then that’s one way for you to double the length of the podcast every week 😉

    Well! “Down in the Library Basement” was…fun :). Nice story Rona (and funny picture below) . I thought the idea of librarians as a group of drab monster-fighting superheroes was cute. (Kinda reminds me of “It” but definitely not in a rip-off way.)

    Also good narration from Jessica, and well-done Brandon. The score fit beautifully with the story.

    You all should have bright futures ahead of you.

    “The Thing in the Rust” was the only story that had the horror element in it. Well written and well narrated. Great job!

    I really enjoyed The Thing in the Rust, both the story and the narration. The author + the narrators + the producers make a great team : )

    Wasn’t “Down in the Library Basement” by Rona Vaselar *already* recorded for ep. 8 of this season? I just checked and…I am right. What happened, guys? It’s the *exact* same narration, even the same illustration! The stories are great, but I now feel like I was ripped off a bit.

      “Down in the Library Basement” includes the first featured story (which was available on S7E08 for members only) AND its conclusion in one big production. And the illustration actually isn’t the same, if you look closely.

      Sooo after listening to the episode, I deeply apologize for my comment. The titles were the same, pictures were the same, I made an assumption I shouldn’t have. Granted, the sequel was…meh, didn’t feel like the sequel was necessary, but I do apologize. I honestly feel terrible now xD;
