Monster Porn Podcast: Horror Stories, Weird & Speculative Fiction


Today, Monster Porn: Weird Fiction & Horror Podcast presents a Lovecraftian take on Bram Stoker’s Dracula called “Blackbirds” by Bret Norwood. The narrator, fleeing over winter New England roads from an unknown danger, reflects upon the maddening knowledge he encountered by cross-referencing a certain forbidden tome with his grandmother Harker’s journals. It’s “What if Lovecraft wrote the sequel to Dracula?” today on MP! “Blackbirds” originally appeared on “Once Upon a Time in Transylvania” presented by OctoberpodVHS. To experience the entire anthology of reinterpretations of Stoker’s Dracula united by verses of Wallace Steven’s poem “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird,” head here: Sign up for our newsletter to get bonus content including our forthcoming digital magazine format at!
