"One Hour" by Dene Bebbington | "A Lament from the Dying" by Keith McDuffee | "The Heart of a Madman" by Gwendolyn Kiste | "Playground Zero" by Jessica McHugh | "Last Steps" by Kelli Perkins More shorter tales like these will be featured in the future for Patreon supporters at patreon.com/wickedlibrary on a one per month basis, but once we have enough collected for a full episode, we'll share them with everyone.
