The Mask of Inanna

The Mask of Inanna is a nine-part audio drama about Leonard Allen, host of a 1950's radio horror show, who is taken out of retirement by a mysterious organization to finish broadcasting the unaired episodes over a pirate radio station based out of a New England lighthouse.

It features two shows in one - the story of Leonard Allen's involvement with two strange pagan communities and “original” episodes from Allen's After Dark 1950's horror radio show.

The world isn't kind to dreamers.

Like any boy of the radio era, Leonard Allen dreamed of hitting big in New York and Hollywood; to write or host that one big show that would make everyone notice. Even after he had his chance at both, that dream still burns inside him. He's always been able to spark the divine somewhere in his work. And he's been noticed.

He doesn't know the lengths people will go to take advantage of such gifts. So when the mysterious David Lewis asked him finish his classic radio drama “After Dark” after a half-century from a pirate radio station in a New England lighthouse, Len didn't realize it wasn't as simple as that. The truth is that Lewis served a more powerful entity than even public opinion: the goddess Inanna, Sumerian patron of love and war both.

Sometimes, a god wants a sacrifice. Sometimes, a god wants praise and devotion. But the most fickle, and the most dangerous, are those who demand a show.
