Another Communist Horror Story is another communist horror story about child labour, deep mining, gold lust, human sacrifice and antediluvian entities lurking in the dark.
Based on a true story. Set in Banská Štiavnica, Slovensko.
Many thanks to Lenka Luptáková, who introduced me to the Salamander ; Léo Henry, John Sellekaers and Eve Commenge, beta-listeners ; and Carine Demange, from Radio Campus Bruxelles, for her deaf trust.
