In the premiere episode of AudioComics' "Horrorscopes" series, writer Rick Hautala takes us to the rocky shores of Maine, where three fishermen remind us why no one ever goes to the lighthouse on the Nephews. Dedicated to the memory of Rick Hautala. (February 3, 1949 - March 21, 2013)

I should've waited to announce my faves! I started putting them in order in other Horrorscopes reviews I've done, but this one - the 4th or 5th in the series that I listened to - is right up in the top three.
Loved them all. A bunch of old time fisherman from Maine with their accents? C'mon Ya gotta love 'em!
No scene in particular. What I enjoyed most was the pitter-pat banter between the fellas. What a great job the cast did of solidifying a clearly long-time friendship of these guys. Busting chops (flank steak!!), calling each other out on misinformation, inside jokes, daring each other. So well done.
I really like the name as it is - it's misleading in a good way. But if I had to, I'd call it The Lighthouse. Kind of obvious but....
Another Horrorscopes performance masterpiece that made me think I was a patron at the end of a bar eavesdropping. The fluidity of the cast makes the conversation seem completely authentic - even though, as the listener who purchased the audiobook, you know they're working from a book/script. Very impressive to know that.
Also - great story. Rick Hautala created some wonderfully fleshed-out characters, put them in the middle of a mariners legend and said, "There you go, guys. Sink or swim? Your choice." Beautifully done.
