The signal from WORN – Radio Orion grows louder and clearer with each passing day, and through the static, Turn to Ash, Vol. 2: Open Lines begins to take form.
Open Lines is a unique series of strange stories, presented as phone calls to late night paranormal talk show host, Chuck Leek, on his nationally syndicated radio program, The Late Night Leak. Of course, Chuck is having a hell of a night himself, and the calls weave through a frame story detailing his weird night of High Strangeness.

Cold Call (frame story) – Jonathan Raab
The Sun Screams in Retrograde – Rebecca Allred
OGRE – Joseph Bouthiette Jr
