” 13th Hour” by Giant Gnome Productions

Welcome back Fictional Cafe Listeners! Giant Gnome Productions is proud to announce the latest episode of our Original Horror Anthology13th Hour, Episode 1: GoldField.

The 13th hour tolls for someone… is it you? It is the dark side of midnight and time to face your innermost fears. Here, shadows overpower and banish the light, freeing the monsters of your imagination. When the 13th Hour strikes, so does the fear inside us all.

We’ve got two more weeks of this Horror month on Fictional Cafe, and we sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed listening as much as we have enjoyed posting. As a reminder, if you are triggered by scary stories, violence and horror, DO NOT LISTEN! We will be back to our regular, family-friendly, cheerful stories after Halloween.
