The End

The Come, Let Me Whisper podcast has come to an end. You can still check out all the horrifying fun you might have missed by using these links:

All the Come, Let Me Whisper short stories are here.

All episodes of the horror novel REVELATIONS are here.

All episodes of the listener contributed series Whisper Back are here.

Or get them all through this RSS feed- it's a lot easier than clicking on every episode.

Thank you to all who have come along and given me encouragement these last two years. It's been a helluva ride!

So, now I wonder what is next? Regardless, at least I'm along for the ride. I will miss CLMW, but ready for the next chapter. Good Luck.

Russell, thank you for the many hours of excellent tales. Thank you for the Watch Bird who has become a permanent presence in my awareness. I wish you nothing but success and good fortune and look forward to seeing your name on a best seller someday soon.

Also best wishes to your wife and your brother, both of whom contributed much into to making CLMW a very special experience.

I ran across the CLMW series, and really enjoyed it. It made my hour long bus ride much more manageable! I can't wait to listen to the Revelations series next.

Gosh, I feel kind of lost! I've really enjoyed the stories, thank you for all of the time you've put in to providing us with such creepiness :)

By the way, if you ever want to kick my butt at Scrabble again, I'm always up for a work-time distraction!

Thanks again and good luck with whatever it is you do next!

So long, Russell, and thank you very much for sharing your talent with us.

I'll be back many times and hope you'll keep us posted.

I'll miss your podcast and I'll never forgive myself for not sending you my intro - your poem read in Portuguese.

Is this really the end?

Thank you Russell for the wonderful creepy times you have given us. I will miss your podcast as much as the others here on this comments page.

I also wish you well in your future ventures and hope too, to see your name on a best seller list in the near future.

Hopefully though there is more darkness in this otherwise light infested world. Will we get another chance to sample your wares? Another taste of the sweet elixir that is your work?

We can only dream!!

Good luck and don't leave us for too long!!

Thank you for all the wonderful stories that you have shared with us. They have provided me with much joy and filled many boring hours at work with something worthwhile. I wish you the best in all of your writing endeavors, not just the horror. You are an amazingly talented writer and I look forward to reading your many masterpieces in the future. Come Let Me Whisper will be greatly missed.

I gotta say, I'm actually really sad to see you go, but I know exactly how you feel about the podcast becoming a chore. I'd wish you all the best, but I already know you're going to get it. I think you and Kelly are wonderful people and I hope to remain internet friends with you guys. Take care guys and thank you so much for stories that made me smile, shiver, and gag all at the same time.

It's been fun, I'll miss the CLMW show. I've only been listening to these for a little more than a year, and now I realize that a podcast isn't a 'regularly broadcast program', but a fleeting thing.

I'm actually a little sad! Thank you so much for all of your stories and wonderful characters... I actually discovered your stories a couple months back and have been listening to all of them nonstop! They make my commute to work enjoyable... Good luck with everything and I hope it truly isn't the very very end... say it isn't so!

Though I am sad to see/hear it end, I am happy for you to be moving into a new phase in your writing!

I'll just have to have you on for an interview again sometime in the not-too-distant-future to talk about what's happening next with your writing.

Thanks for leaving your blog and podcast episodes up for new folks to discover and enjoy. I'm sure you will have new fans coming from the woodwork clamoring for your next work!

I look forward to hearing more from Chris & Tommy and whatever you do next! Thanks again for everything, Russell. I will keep sending horror fans this way for the good stuff as long as you have it active!

Russ!!! Noooo! So sad to hear the podcast is ending. I had just recently found CLMW and devoured every single episode in about 3 days.

I just wanted to say that the one that got me hooked was "Bradley's Lover" -- I thrive on shock, and boy was that a shocker.

At least I got one juicy morsel of Revelations left... But most of all I want to say is thanks for sharing your creativity with everyone. You'll be missed for sure.

Dude, if you quit for good I'm going to light myself on fire on the front steps of RandomHouse to protest the injustice of it all.

Seiously though, it's been a great ride. Thanks for the stories, Russ.

The only thing matching your wonderful ability to entertain and scare the hell out of us, is the class, humility and integrity you did it with.

Thanks for us so much a part of your show with the CLMW intros, and for sharing your wonderful family with us, thanks for that.

I can't wait to see what's next for you.

I just discovered "Come, Let Me Whisper" through an advertisement at the end of a chapter of Christiana Ellis' podiobook "Nina Kimberley the Merciless". I'm so glad I decided to check it out! I've listened to the first three stories and I'm hooked. I can hardly wait to listen to the rest of CLMW - what a great way to make a boring day at work go faster. I'll certainly try "Revelations", as well.

Russell, you have a great way with words, and you read your stories with flair. Your accent took me a moment or two to get used to (yes, to me you have an accent), but I've decided that it adds an extra dimension to your stories. I especially love your dry, slightly twisted sense of humor.

"Work Ethic" really tickled me - I was raised with that same ethic! "Bradley's Lover" made my co-workers ask what I was grinning about. And I sympathize with the narrator of "The Typewriter". As an amateur writer myself, I know how a story can take unexpected and not entirely controlled twists as it's being written.

Thanks so much for creating these podcasts. Great stories like these make long days at work bearable.

i just picked up your series off of iTunes, and I have to say that I've come to love it. I wish that I had been cool enough to know about it while it was an ongoing podcast. Great work, and I can't wait to see what you've got in store for us in the future.

Heard CLMW on Podiobooks, followed up by coming here and subscribing to your feed (which I'm super-psyched about; now I can hear MORE!) and just wanted to let you know how much I have liked your stories so far!

Your accent, so close to my own, was kinda comfortable listening to...I'm from NC, grandma and aunt are in Chattanooga, so yeah...

Anyways, just wanted to share my appreciation, and look forward to what I'm downloading in the feed now, and what you have for the future!

I'm trying to send your stories out from my iPhone, to my ears, to my brain slowly, one or two a day, although I really, really want to gobble them all up at once.
I am so glad I bought an iphone, because if I hadn't, I may have never discovered your writing!

Thank you for all the great stories. I work weekends at a hospital and sometimes I pass the morgue on L2 and cant help but to think of the succubus that might be on the other side just waiting for some love. Thank you for making the weekends fly by.
