"The High Priest" and Modern Lit

For anyone who is interested, I thought I might write a little about "The High Priest" regarding my thoughts while writing it and a little bit of response to some of the comments it has generated.

High Priest Artwork

Barry was kind enough to use the rather amaturish piece I drew for "The High Priest" depicting Ardan St. Cygnus and Bethany Eves. His computerized sorcery has made it pleasant to look at, but here's the full piece in its undilluted glory for those who wish to see it.

Fullcast of "The High Priest" at Cast Macabre

Tremble in fear, mortals! Castmacabre has produced a piece of audio sorcery so black that your sanity will be shattered with each hypnotic syllable.

With all seriousness, this is the most amazing podcast I have ever heard. I am absolutely blown away by Barry's unspeakably amazing production of this piece. The narration is beyond description. I usually squirm a little when listening to my own work being read, but for this one I was literally held spellbound. R.E. Chambliss' narration was spot on - cruel, enrapturing and seductive. Abigail Hilton of Cowry Catchers fame nails Bethany's blind hatred - and Bob Eccles IS Ardan!

Music has once again been kindly provided by none other than Nox Arcana.

Words fail me when describing this production, so listen to it yourself HERE.
