Welcome to Season 2, Episode 9 of The Simply Scary Podcast. This episode of our program is hosted by G.M. Danielson.
In our continuing effort to spotlight up and coming authors, this episode is dedicated to works introducing you to the frightening worlds of author Cosmas McCoy. His work has been featured in print as part of the anthology “What World Is This?: And Other Stories”. In addition, he has written screenplays for horror films. This studying Catholic priest takes time from his higher works in America’s Northeastern corridor to delve into the dark world of the imagination to unleash upon us the fruits of his haunting universe. Join us as we take a journey toward the malevolent with today’s episode, “Neither Seen Nor Heard From.”
“The Distillery Incident” written by Cosmas McCoy and performed by Benjamin Lisman (Damon Hackman/narrator), featuring Nathaniel Hawkins (Detective Grevinsky) and Brindolyn McNair (911 dispatcher). Production by Jesse Cornett. Score by Jesse Cornett. The world is littered with sites forgotten by a constantly forward moving society. A plethora of unattended former industrial areas, long-shuttered hospitals and abandoned housing facilities have birthed a sub-cultural adventure sport that takes advantage of these foreboding places. “Urban exploration” seeks the thrill of the unknown in the forgotten. But, sometimes, what lurks in the darkness may be best left forgotten. DOWNLOAD THIS STORY NOW (MP3)

“We Let It In” written by Cosmas McCoy and performed by Kyra Greif (young narrator), featuring Aiden Ordover (young Andy), Aaron Ordover (adult Andy), Mary Naugle (mom), Ashley Tolfo (Missy), Steve Taylor (father/Bill), and Jesse Cornett (the “thing”). Production by Felipe Ojeda and Jesse Cornett. Score by Jesse Cornett. In this tale, we bear witness to an act of childish naivety that unleashes a terror that is all too real. A young girl in her journey through life is accompanied by a dominating presence, about which there is nothing she can do, for once the door is opened, it cannot be closed again. And a beastly craving will not be satiated with anything less than her soul. DOWNLOAD THIS STORY NOW (MP3)
