A Quarantine Special / 10k download milestone bonus episode.  “Status-Quo” is a stand-alone short story, in which a young man is haunted by his unclear crimes and the immanent arrival of a parole officer who is not of this world. Pursuing a theme of “cosmic-authority-horror”. Written & narrated by Equanimous Rex.  Audio mastered by James Curcio.  Music provided by Equanimous Rex, and by P. Emerson Williams of PANICMACHINE. You can find more PANICMACHINE at digital.panicmachine.com Season Two of The Witch-Doctor is currently in the works with over 20k words of rough draft material, and more to come.

The Witch-Doctor Presents... Lilith Origins: Dark Passenger A limited run podcast microseries, set within the Fallen Cycle mythos.  Written and Narrated by James Curcio  https://www.jamescurcio.com/ Warning: This episode contains adult themes, disturbing imagery, rampant megalomania, unreliable narrators, and the spiral of violence that accompanies the dehumanization of others when coupled with mad, amoral science, and even worse, the realm of ideas.  In this microseries we bring you another installment in the Fallen Cycle mythos, an exclusive reading of Lilith Origins: Dark Passenger. This story can stand on its own, but if you’re wondering how it ties together with everything else we’ve been doing here, I recommend you check out Party At The World’s End, a novel written by James Curcio. You can find more information at Party At The World's End on Fallencycle.com, along with all other Fallen Cycle projects.  Listener discretion is advised. The music in this episode was created by James Curcio, P. Emerson Williams, Scott Landes, Sean Marz and Johan Ess. If you liked what you heard, you can find more at The Fallen Cycle bandcamp at fallencycle.bandcamp.com, P. Emerson William's Panic Machine at digital.panicmachine.com, or Johan Ess's bandcamp at johan-ess.bandcamp.com Special thanks for providing synth elements as well as audio mastering to Johan Ess.
