Welcome to the 8th annual Month of Spooky. We are going to have a whole lot of fun this year and when it is all said and done I think you will agree. Sylvia Shults is back for Volume V of Ghost Stories with Sylvia. Jim Harold returns for the eighth year to talk about all things creepy in Old Time Horror with Jim Harold. We have newcomer Schuler Johnson visiting to tell us about ghost hunting and his group the Paranormal Investigations & Observations Team. You might remember a story they sent in a few weeks back. Add to it all, the stories you have sent in to and I think you see why are in for a trick-or-treat or two this year. I want to thank all of you that sent in stories this year. It is our best showing yet. Thank you for everything you do for the podcast and these amazing stories.
Anything You Can Do and Halloween
Not everyone was happy about the podcast. I received this note from Jo L on Facebook.
I am so tired of hearing “Anything You Can Do”. As soon as it starts I turn RAS off. Typically I love your show but I found the story and reading to be most tedious and monotone. Can’t wait for it to end. – Jo L.
Jo L. you are the first that has said that they don’t care for Anything You Can Do. I have made the commitment to complete the book so we will do that. There are seven chapters to go and I can guarantee it is going to get exciting. The big fight starts soon between the Bart and the Nipe and I highly recommend the end of this novel. Most people have responded favorably to the story and Mark’s reading of it. I urge you to stick with it and hear the end of the story.
However! I will say that we’ll not be playing new chapters of it during The Month Of Spooky. It will return in November and we will finish the story of the Bart and his battle with the space alien. For those of you who can’t wait for more of the novel. I will be updating the Anything You Can Do homepage each week with new chapters introduced by Mark Nelson himself. Also, on a side note, after we finish the book, Mark Nelson will be coming on the show to talk about it. I am excited about that!
Thank you Jo L. for your comment I do really appreciate it!

We continue withAnything You Can Doby Randall Garrett and Tom Williams finally gets to tell us about his donkey. So, grab that favorite drink and press the play button!
Featured Story – Chapter 15 of Anything You Can Do…
This is a classic science fiction story written byRandall Garrettand published in 1963. An alien crash lands on Earth, and for ten years terrorizes the planet. Earth’s only hope is Bart Stanton, a medically-engineered superman, designed for the sole purpose of confronting the Nipe.
In this episode, we spend some quality time with Bart and his physical therapist. Just how fast is he? We find out this week. This chapter feels like a lead into something big. I think you will love it!
I have had a couple emails asking about the blog site. What is it and why is it? Simply put it is the second home to the show. I have found that while the main site does almost everything it needs to do, there are a few functions it lacks. For example, the story submission page is not possible on the main site but works great on the blog. Also, special pages like the one I created for our current novel Anything You Can Do, can’t be done on the main site. I wanted to write a weekly blog along with the show. Of course, the main site can do this, but the WordPress site has the better tools to make it more available to be followed and seen. A lot of the links you press on ronsamazingstories.com take you to the blog. I’ll bet you have been there and didn’t even know it.
The Show Art
I have had people ask about how you can view the show art from the podcast. All of this art is posted on the Facebook fan page each week. How I create the show art is to a put together a wallpaper quality version of it and then break that down into the thumbnail and featured art you see travel with the podcast. To view the original art simply head to Facebook. The photo album with the most pictures is the timeline.

The eighth annual month of spooky is fast approaching and I am still a few stories short. I am looking for the really scary stuff! Do you have one to share? Maybe you don’t want to write it. I can help with that. Come to main the website and click on the contact tab and tell me all about it. We can set up a phone chat or just keep it in emails. However, you want to tell your story I am willing to listen.
I have had people say that they don’t want anyone to know about their experience, but they do want to tell it. In these cases, I will keep your real name out of it and we can go from there. You would be surprised by how many names I have to make up!
Sylvia Shults is coming back for this year’s event and I want to be armed with the best stories I can get for that show. It will be her 5th time doing this, and we have a great time telling each other some of the best stories on the internet!
Thank you for reading!
