Westside Fairytales

Horror and Dark Fiction Stories

The Westside Fairytales is as an award winning, horror and dark-fiction storytelling podcast with stories spanning multiple genres, subjects, and locales that all take place in the same universe.  

Demons, desperate souls, and eldritch horrors. Strange and varied original stories that will linger long after you’ve finished listening.  

The Westside Fairytales is long-running and lore-dense, but every story is written as an entry-point for new listeners and can be enjoyed independently of the greater universe.

Original stories, performance, music, and production by Tyler Bell
