Episode #33: “The Theft of the Thirty-Nine Girdles”

A transcription of this episode is available.

In this week’s episode, we close Hyperborea with a story from the, err, “master thief” Satampra Zeiros. That’s right, it’s time for the infamous “Theft of the Thirty-Nine Girdles.”

Join us next time as we reflect on the NecronomiCon conference we all went to at the end of August and go over what stories we’ll be covering next.

Episode #32: “The Coming of the White Worm”

We finally present our long-awaited “Coming of the White Worm” episode. Between power failures and illnesses, this was as much a monster to record as it was for Hyperborea. But now we’re recording more and back on track. Our guest is Mike Bukowski, who really does have a fake cult.

We swear to Tsathoggua that Rumology is a REAL thing.

Join us next time for the final story in Hyperborea “The Theft of the Thirty-Nine Girdles.”

Reader: The Divine Joe Scalora
Music: Kevin MacLeod

Episode #29: “The White Sybil”

This week, we follow Tortha the poet as he follows “The White Sybil.” Surely, the doom of Hyperborea is nigh.

Episode #28: “Ubbo-Sathla”

This week, we’re covering “Ubbo-Sathla.” Our reader is Jordan Smith. As noted in the episode, this is the first story (chronologically) this is the first time Eibon is referenced in a CAS story. The Brundage cover we mentioned is below:

In exciting news, we’ve been nominated for a Parsec award. Thank you, listeners!

Next time, we’ll be tackling “The White Sybil” with guest reader @CrowGirl42.

Music for this episode: David G. Bonacho – Vertices en el Tiempo; Mister M – Darkness; Stefano Giardiniere – Lost at Nowhere

Episode #27: “The Ice-Demon”

First, we (Tim) would like to begin by apologizing for the audio issue on this episode. It’s got an echo because Tim’s audio was messed up and straightening it out ended up with an echo. This week’s episode is “The Ice-Demon.” Our reader is @JoeScalora.

Because we were behind, the Pseudopod episode we mentioned is already out. They’ve recorded Clark Ashton Smith’s “The Ninth Skeleton.

We’ve also recorded the next two episodes, so we’re hoping not to end up with a gap like that again. Our next episode will be “Ubbo-Sathla.”

Music for this episode was: Flanicx – Meat N Bones, Flanicx – Funesto, Flanicx – Xperiment N, AlienAqtor – Tense Parte 01.

Episode #26: “The Testament of Athammaus” pt. 2

This is our second week of “The Testament of Athammaus” with guest Mike Bukowski, the illustrator behind Yog-Blogsoth, a site devoted to artistic renditions of Lovecraftian, Smithian, Howardian, and other Weird beings.

Mike has done hundreds of creatures by this point and put out three hard-to-snag volumes, which he periodically reprints. There are plenty of Smith characters on the site as well as your more classic Lovecraftian ones. Plus, he’s tackled things one doesn’t often see illustrated in Lovecraft. You may want to consider viewing them from home, however, as there’s a great deal of nudity.

The tale concludes with the abandonment of Commoriom after it has been overrun by a single, growing monster-human hybrid. Perhaps this tale could be called “if Wilbur Whately hadn’t had that little dog problem.”

Next time, we’ll be doing The Ice-Demon.
