After Dark
Jude Stroud ($4.41, 23 page PDF)

After Dark is a new reality show, looking to cash in on the popularity of 'real' hauntings. You're hoping to cash in too, as contestants in the very first episode. Details are sketchy; you know you're being taken to spend two nights in a haunted location somewhere in Maine, there will be some sort of challenges to complete there, and there will be no production crew - the show is to be filmed entirely on body-mounted cameras.The waiver you signed made one more thing clear; there will be no phones, no internet, and in an emergency, help may take hours to reach you. If something goes wrong, you're on your own. Good thing ghosts aren't real... right?

The Wolf in the Labyrinth
Malcolm Harbrow ($4.99, 22 page PDF)

Howard Elbridge, a writer of weird fiction, has disappeared. Looking into his disappearance, the investigators will uncover his links to Miskatonic University's "daring" set, and the history of a mysterious painting.
