“Jilted Blue Silk Dress” [Audio]

“I am not in the least superstitious.”

psychological #audiostory #ghost #paranormal

This is the second episode of The Margins: Oddly-Shaped Ideas audio stories series, an inquiry into inexplicable paranormal happenings. This story has a bit more investigative girth. “Jilted Blue Silk Dress” is adapted from an actual letter I found scouring the 1889 Journal of the Society for Psychical Research, the granddaddy of paranormal investgations.  “Jilted” is about a bad batch love match, a cheating heart story wherein a would-be bridegroom recounts a haunting precognitive vision that changes his future (and marriage plans!). No spoilers.

It’s available in both .mp3 and as a .flac track at our Bandcamp page. Pay what you want, or send us a tip! Enjoy.
