Cover for 'Interference'

SOMETHING wants in. To your head. Through this audiobook.

Ethan, a digital sound engineer in Los Angeles, becomes aware that his life is unraveling when the audiobook he's listening to reveals his deepest, darkest secrets, escalating until the narrator addresses him directly, threatening to destroy him from within. Vivian, a single mother running an antique store in San Francisco, listens to her audiobook to distract herself from missing her young daughter, but is shaken when the narrative is interrupted by her daughter's voice, faintly calling for help.

Ethan and Vivian are drawn together as they fight to solve a generation-spanning conspiracy that begins with a boy listening to the Orson Welles broadcast of War of the Worlds in 1938 and evolves through the latest innovations in digital technology, unearthing the mind-bending concept of a POSSIBILITY PARASITE bent on unleashing an explosion of APOCALYPTIC META HORROR.

From Eric Luke, screenwriter of EXPLORERS, and comic books GHOST and WONDER WOMAN: an experiment in audio horror.

Thanks CC. Seems like there's still a place for subtlety in horror, even with everyone pushing the limits. Glad you enjoyed it. : )
Just finished this one, really enjoyed it. I do love a story that can surprise me, and this one was riveting. I also appreciate that, while it was creepy and horrific, it wasn't too much for me to take and didn't go places I couldn't follow--it struck a great balance ...
Thanks Matt. Always appreciated! And glad you're enjoying it. New work to come soon.
Just finished Episode 16, what a great climax! No Jimmy, don't pick up that ...!!! Ouch! Anyhow, for the last 6 episodes I have been meaning to find a Donate button to give something back for this story, and I gladly clicked it today. Thanks for the story Eric, I ...
"Go on. Why don't you listen to it." The voice was the author's. He was seated across from me, down to the dregs of his latte, our conversation drawing its last breath. "Sure." And I nodded noncommittally, thinking, "An audiobook? Just what do you take me for?" Yet I knew ...
Thanks Valerie! What great descriptors. I certainly went through all of them in my head while writing, so very nice to hear they're being felt on the listening end. Stay tuned for more in the near future.
I have just finished the most thrilling, chilling, sad, mad, crazy sane, podiobook that I have ever listened to! Interference by Eric Luke, is all that and more. So creepy, spooky in some parts, but it all seems like it could really happen at any given time. Thank you for ...
Thanks Tony. That's high praise; I really like the Odd Thomas books too. Koontz and King are favorites of course. Pseudopod has been good to me over the years. I always enjoy reading for them. Stay tuned for further audio, including a part on an upcoming game from Six to ...
Heard about this book on an episode of Psuedopod. I downloaded the first chapter just to check it out. I thought "How good can a free audiobook really be?" I have to tell you, I really enjoyed it. I liked it a lot more than the last Dean Koontz book ...
Thanks Jason. Great to get the seal of approval from an industry pro! It seemed important to get the details right. Downloads continue to increase, which is gratifying. Thanks again. : )
