Suspense OTR Anthology Project

Introduction

This project is a labor of love (obsession) to collect all of the fictional works on which the Suspense OTR programs were based. The anthology will include only those works on which shows were based, and will not include original scripts written for the show. Most of these works are already in the public domain, but others will be transcribed from obtained sources. The ultimate goal will to format these works into a volume to be bound for my personal enjoyment.

Getting Suspense OTR in MP3

I have the complete collection of all Suspense OTR shows known to exist on 3 DVD's (19 CD's worth). If you would like to have a copy, I'm more than happy to share. Here's how:

  1. The very best way to get Suspense is to download it from the Suspense OTRR repository at archive.org. If you don't have the bandwidth or patience to do that, try the following:
  2. There is a round-robin available from the Suspense OTR Yahoo! group. Go to http://groups.yahoo.com, and search for the group OTRDAYS_Suspense. You will have to join the group (painless), and post a message asking to be put on the list for the Complete Listener's Set. A round-robin is where one person on the list copies the DVD's and then mails them on to the next person in the list. You will be expected to pass the set on to the next person once you've made your copies (at your expense). In this way, you have the set sent to you free of charge, and your payment (to the community) is paying the postage forward to the next person.
  3. Send me three (6) 8x DVD-CD blanks to the address below, along with a mailer with return postage, and I'll happily donate my time to make you a copy. Given that six DVD's amounts to about 36 CD's, I am not able/willing to provide the set on CD. The address is: Suspense DVD, 15818 Oak Island Drive, Tomball, TX, 77377
  4. If you don't have any blanks, then PayPal me (ghester@codefool.org) $10.00, and I'll make you a set and ship them to you. The $10.00 covers the cost of the blanks, protective sleeves, mailer, postage, and maybe a soda while I make the copies. I do not attempt to make any profit from this, as my goal is to share these wonderful radio programs with anyone who is interested.

Mail any questions to me at ghester@codefool.org.
