Whisper Back- I Vampire by James G. Kelly

Today I present I Vampire by James G. Kelly. Be sure to check out his novel The Scarecrow. Thank you, Jim, for providing such a nice take on the vampire genre!

Our narrator was Sean Phipps, podcaster for the Chattanooga Times Free Press. You can get to know him better through his MySpace Page. Thank you Sean! You made quite a convincing vampire... should those of us here in Chattanooga be worried? Seriously, though, great job!

So You Think You're a Werewolf? is the second contribution to Whisper Back by horror author Stuart Neild. Here's where you can check out his novel, A Haunted Man. Thank you, Stuart, for once again sharing such a fun story!

Many thanks also go out to Chris Gold for doing a wonderful job narrating the story for us. Sweet performance, Chris!

Finally, for those of you who might be wondering what's happened to the CLMW episodes lately, I can but say this: It will likely be mid-January before I'm able to return to that portion of the show. I hope you understand, and rest assured I'll still be producing Whisper Back between now and then in hopes of keeping that horror itch of yours scratched.

And just to recap some comments I made in the outro to today's show, first I want to thank those of you who have submitted stories for your patience while awaiting my response. It might take me a bit to get back to you on the story itself, but if you didn't receive an email within a few days to let you know I received the story, then I most likely never received your email- So please try again!
Second, I really want to express my gratitude to those of you who have submitted stories that I chose not to include on the show. I know it's tough to step out on a limb like that, and it really makes me incredibly happy to be able to say that you guys have been nothing but cool! Many, many thanks for that.

I hope you'll leave your thoughts and suggestions about the show through the comments section right under the player below. Thanks for your continued support!
