The Penny Dreadful is dedicated to bringing back the art of the serial in a modern format.  Within these pages you will find short, episodic stories in a variety of media:

  • Flash fiction – stories told in 1000 words or less
  • Podcast/audio – along the lines of old radio serial adventures, like The Shadow
  • Video shorts
  • Comics
  • Multimedia/mixed media stories

In the future we hope to add

  • Interviews with authors & cast members
  • Reviews of serials
  • Chats on twitter at #thepennydreadful
  • And anything else we can dream up

This is also the home of the twitter hashtag, #thepennydreadful, where authors can share links to their latest episodes or talk shop about the art and craft of writing serials.
