For some reason, I think the church organist from "In The Court Of The Dragon" may be mentioned as well, although I think that one takes place in Paris so maybe/maybe not?

Good call on the romance angle as well - I asked the reader to accentuate that because it's given so much space in the piece and it nicely highlights some class differences.

Great story.  I think that horror holds up very well over time--maybe moreso than any other genre fiction.

The part about the nudity was great, too.  Really helped to add to the mood/theme of things that had seemed normal no longer are.  Great story.

I believe it has been tweeted in relation to such but any retweeting/reposting to boost the signal will undoubtedly help....

Extremely well done, I would definitely encourage Pseudopod to revisit The King in Yellow stories.  I want to know more about this book.

The Repairer of Reputations is beastly long for PseudoPod's usual format. However, I would recommend popping over to The Classic Tales Podcast and listen to it in two parts over there.

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”
