the spectre collector

the spectre collector is a collection of short, surreal stories — sometimes referred to as “dark audio tone poems”1) — written and performed by Ron Jon, with accompanying music and occasional sound effects.

I'm a collector.

Much like the Brothers Grimm collected fairy tales I collect disturbing stories. Many of them frightening first-hand accounts and strange experiences told by people like you and me, everyday folk dealing with things that shouldn't happen, seeing things they should never see.

These are sinister, often unpleasant stories I've found in old newspapers, dusty files, lost notebooks, forgotten letters and diaries. My friends call me … 'the spectre collector'.

These recordings form what I call 'my infernal collection'.

I'd like to share them with you.
