The Ghost Ship Audio Drama

Visit our our archived Kickstarter page


Boston Metaphysical Society: The Ghost Ship is an eight-episode steampunk supernatural audio drama.  Originally a graphic novel, the series is about an ex-Pinkerton detective, a spirit photographer, and a genius scientist who battle supernatural forces in late 1800s Boston. The Ghost Ship takes place during our original six issue mini-series. It follows the story of our three main characters, Samuel, Caitlin, and Granville as they investigate a mysterious ghost ship that has sailed into Boston Harbor and is not only killing those who board her, but luring children to their death.

To help make The Ghost Ship happen, I brought on the amazing team of Eddie Louise and Chip Michael of the steampunk scifi audio drama Sage and Savant to handle script editing, audio engineering and direction, as well the music.

 Each episode will be approximately 30 minutes long with a full cast, special effects, and original music.

UPDATE – 1/31/22

We are currently in post-production with Kickstarter Rewards scheduled to be delivered in Feb./March 2022.  If you weren’t part of the campaign, the flash drive and CD will be on sale at a later date. Bookmark this page for updates.
