Rise of the Ancient Ones

A new, dark world dawns from the combined imaginations of Mark Kalita, Paul Mannering and H.P. Lovecraft. Gothik is an original horror audio drama set in a city where the sun never rises ... where the supernatural explains what science cannot ... where modern man and ancient myths collide ... and monsters are very, very real.
