Classic Tales of Terror – Episode 6: The Raven

Shadowvane-New-01Episode 11 of Progenix Labs, entitled “Beginnings and Endings,” will be out around the 9th or 10th or this month.  We appreciate your patience!  In the meantime, how about one of the most famous tales in all of Gothic literature?

Ways to Listen:

We’ve given Poe quite a bit of love lately, but there’s a reason he’s one of the best known writers in the genre of horror.  Tonight our very own Emily Morgan, voice of Ms. Yvette Hartman in Progenix Labs, offers a chilling rendition of the classic poem that made Poe famous but only earned him only $9 for its publishing.

Classic Tales of Terror – Episode 5: The Masque of the Red Death

Shadowvane-New-01Our apologies for the lateness of this!  We hope you enjoy it!

Ways to Listen:

While our amazing voice actors work their magic on the 11th episode of Progenix Labs, enjoy a much more well known classic tale by the master of horror, Edgar Allan Poe.  In his story “The Masque of the Red Death,” a prince ignores a terrifying plague that is killing most of his town’s population.  Instead, he gathers a group of his wealthy friends to wait out the disease.  If you know anything about Poe’s work, I imagine you can guess how that might work out for him.

We will release new episodes twice a month on the 1st and 15th. Episode 10 of Progenix Labs will release on May 15th.
