Robert Weinberg Presents
The Strangers Audiobook
by Mort Castle
Read by Milton Bagby
 
 
Meet Michael Louden. He’s a nice guy, the friendly neighbor who attends PTA meetings and sells peanuts for the Kiwanis Club. Mike always has a friendly hello when you pass him mowing the lawn. He has a great sense of humor and is always quick with a joke or funny story. Mike’s married with a cute wife and two wonderful kids. Yet, somehow, there’s something beneath that pleasant exterior, that calm demeanor that sets your nerves on fire. Something about Mike Louden isn’t right.
 
Mike Louden is a Stranger. It’s a name he’s given himself and others like him. Because he knows that modern society is filled with people like him — Strangers who do not fit into the restrictive boundaries of normal social behavior. For deep down, far beneath the surface of pleasant, ordinary Michael Louden is another person — a homicidal maniac who schemes to murder everyone he knows. He’s death given human form, a monster who’s keeping close watch on his friends and family, just waiting for them to make a single mistake, a foolish misstep. That’s when he will strike; killing, murdering, slaughtering. The day of the Stranger is coming, coming faster than anyone can imagine. Millions upon millions of them will rise up, howling at the moon, and drowning the ordinary people of the world in rivers of blood! It’s coming soon, and nothing can stop it.
 
Mort Castle is a master of the written word. He’s particularly well known as an author of creepy stories. This is the second of his classic horror novels to be adapted by Radio Archives, the first being Cursed Be the Child, published in 2014. Read by Milton Bagby.
 

Robert Weinberg, Series Editor, in fifth grade read The Devil and Daniel Webster, by Stephen Vincent Benet, and knew beyond any shadow of a doubt that he wanted to become a writer. It’s a dream he’s followed since. During the past 57 years, Bob has written and sold nearly 150 short stories, 19 novels, 18 non-fiction books and more than two dozen comic book scripts. He’s edited more than 200 anthologies and short story collections. Bob’s work has been published in 20 countries and 15 languages.
 
He’s won 2 Bram Stoker Awards, for writing and editing, given by the Horror Writers Association; 2 World Fantasy Awards; and 2 Society of Technical Writers Awards for his non-fiction science books. He served 2 terms as Vice President of the Horror Writers Association. He’s the only person in the history of the organization to win the group’s Silver Hammer Award for service to the association 2 times. Bob also was on the Board of Trustees for the World Fantasy Convention for 24 years. In 2005, Bob was Guest-of-Honor at Robert E. Howard Days held in Cross, Plains, Texas. Later that same year, was Guest-of-Honor at the World Fantasy Convention held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1983, Bob was given a Lamont Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the Directors of PULPcon, the convention for pulp magazine enthusiasts. The Horror Writers Association awarded Bob a Bram Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. In 2012, he was present a special award by the World Science Fiction Convention for his contributions to the Science Fiction field. Bob is probably the only horror writer who has ever served as Grand Marshall of a Rodeo parade. Despite all his success, Bob Weinberg is not yet ready to retire. He’s still looking to write the perfect story. He’s intent on composing a story that resonates with his readers the way The Devil and Daniel Webster did with him. It’s a goal he may never achieve, but he intends to keep trying.

Milton Bagby is a veteran radio announcer and voiceover specialist who first turned to audiobooks in 2010. Since then, Milton has worked on over two dozen audiobook projects as a narrator or producer. Drawing upon years of stage acting and the occasional bit part in films, Milton uses his experience to create characters that stand out in the ear of the listener.

“I am very much aware that a perfect stranger is going to invest eight or ten hours listening to me tell a story. I do my best to give the listener an experience in which the characters in that story come alive and sound real.”

When not behind a microphone, Milton is a writer.  In addition to the well-received Rick Burkhart crime novels, Milton writes a line of 1950s style pulp stories, and is the author of dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books.  Milton and his wife live in Nashville.
