Sticks - Free Download

A lot of people believe “Sticks” by Karl Edward Wagner is the greatest horror story ever written. If you have never read it and want to check it out, or have read it but want it in a new format, the ZBS Foundation is offering the audiobook of this great story as a free download through Halloween. You can access it at their website here. The audiobook is recorded in Kuntskopf binaural sound, which produces a 3D effect for the listener. If you’ve ever heard the excellent adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Mist”, this is the same process. Give it a listen.

Wow, thanks for this link. With all the reminiscences of Wagner, I knew I had to read this, but hadn't yet got around to it. This will be ideal!

I still listen to my old cassette tape of The Mist, and I don't know why 3-D recording didn't catch on in a big way back then. Another great one from the same period was Clive Barker's The Body Politic done in the same way.

I was excited to find this, too. And thanks for letting me know about The Body Politic, I'll be on the lookout for that one.

The audio on this is fantastic. Listening to it in headphones is great!
