We’ve got big plans for our 10th Anniversary celebration. We’re teaming with Horror in Clay, numerous authors, and members of the online horror community to make our 10th Halloween something special.
In 2015, Pseudopod started paying authors rates to qualify for SFWA and HWA membership for original full length stories. In 2016, we started paying authors these rates for all original stories. For 2017, we would like to start paying our narrators. As part of this campaign to raise funds, we’re going to be coming to the community and asking them to help out. But we’re not just going to come with our hands out. We’d also like to provide an anthology and a mug as donor rewards. This campaign will launch in the week before Halloween 2016.
Over the course of the campaign we’ll reveal details about the companion anthology. We have an essay for every day of the campaign from members of the community that have impacted and been impacted by Pseudopod.

We started the showcase with Fritz Leiber’s “A Bit of the Dark World” as our 500th Episode. Over the next year we will be releasing a bonus story each month with a representative story from each decade of the 20th Century.
