The Black Stone - Dark Adventure Radio Theatre (CD)



Dark Adventure Radio Theatre presents Robert E. Howard's tale of horrors in Eastern Europe in a 1930s-style radio drama. The story bounds to life with a cast of nineteen professional actors, thrilling sound effects and an original orchestral score by Troy Sterling Nies. They're like movies you can enjoy with your eyes closed.

Charlie Tower seeks refuge from the horrors of the Great War in Berlin's most notorious nightclubs. There a chain of events is set in motion that will lead him across Europe to investigate the mysterious Black Stone. Is it merely a creation of superstitious peasants, or is it a nexus for hideous gods of the ancient world to set foot into ours?

This CD edition features the 75 minute audio show plus a collection of props to enhance your listening experience.

- a newspaper clipping about the strange poet Justin Geoffrey
- a map of the ever changing landscape of Eastern Europe
- a photo of the medieval Turks' encounter with the Black Stone
- a postcard from Heaven & Hell

All of these great extras will be complemented by the fantastic artwork of illustrator Darrell Tutchton in the style you've come to know and love from other episodes of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre.

Robert E. Howard was the creator of Conan the Barbarian and countless other tales from the golden era of pulp fiction. He was a friend and admirer of H. P. Lovecraft, and while most of his stories were in other genres, Howard wrote a few great tales of supernatural horror. We're delighted to present this story through a special arrangement with Robert E. Howard Properties, LLC.

** Content Warning: "The Black Stone" features a scene that's a bit more violent and horrible than what one usually hears in Dark Adventure Radio Theatre. If you're sensitive to such things, this episode might not be for you.

** We also wish to clarify that the Black Stone referred to in this show has nothing to do with Islam's Black Stone at the Kaaba in Mecca.
