Supernatural Radio 4

Not sure why, but there's a feast of supernatural fiction on Radio 4 (the BBC's premier speech network, if you didn't know.) At the moment there's a dramatisation of The Exorcist, Peter William Blatty's novel that was controversially filmed in a fashion that didn't do Mike Oldfield's accountant any harm. You can hear it on the BBC iPlayer here.

And next week, by way of contrast, you can hear a reading of a new novel by Lynne 'Eats, Shoots, and Leaves' Truss. Cat Out of Hell is described as a 'comic and chilling gothic tale about a grieving widower and a supernatural cat'. It's serialised as the Book at Bedtime. If you don't know Lynne Truss' work, she has a sterling track record when it comes to ghost stories and related weirdness. Check out her site.
