Prelude To A Scream - Episode 10

Episode 10 of Prelude To A Scream features "Phantom Mitch" written by Mark Leslie and originally published in the magazine Wicked Mystic in 1993. It received honourable mention in The Year's Best Fantasy & Horror #7 and was reprinted in 2004 in Mark's short story collection One Hand Screaming.

"Phantom Mitch" looks at the phenomenon of the "phantom itch" (itches felt on phantom limbs) and proposes the idea that the amputated limb might exist on some other ethereal plane or "afterlife."

This podcast contains the full story as well as notes from Mark on the writing of the tale and outright begging for listeners to provide feedback or ask questions which he would be happy to answer.
