Fourble Board should be known as a great work of horror fiction even beyond the bounds of OTR. Stands up to anything King, Barker, Bloch or Matheson wrote, and I have a feeling they would agree.

Mike Hobart

This is THE radio horror episode par excellence.

Once heard, never forgotten.

This is, indeed, a great piece of work. Very minimal but it will come to life in your imagination.

Gary Digital Williams

"Quiet Please" can be a tough show to listen to. Some of the episodes don't work quite as well for me.

But "The Thing on the Fourble Board" does not fall into that category. This is just a classic show!

...definitely had a creepy dream after listening to this...

Awesome story!

Tom Gabriel

The Thing on the Fourble Board is an example of the power of radio drama at its best--it is minimalist, with periods of silence, few sound effects, and dialog spoken quietly for the most part, and it all works better than a hundred people shouting, loud sound effects, and something audible happening every second. It works because it is effective storytelling, which doesn't always require lots of things going on, especially in the medium which has been called "theater of the mind"--old time radio. The imagination supplies all the horror that isn't supplied by what it hears--if it's all done right. The Thing on the Fourble Board is done exceptionally, memorably, and effectively right.
