MAG 100.5 - Assistants Round Table

Happy last week of hiatus! Join us behind-the-scenes as the familiar voices of the Magnus Institute's archival assistants break character to discuss their thoughts on performance, inspiration, and horror. As an added bonus, here is a short must-read (or play) list from Alex, Mike, and Lydia:


  • Alien Isolation - Creative Assembly (not read but play!)
  • Blindsight - Peter Watts
  • Dracula - Bram Stoker
  • Swamp Thing - DC Comics (Alan Moore)
  • The Dunwich Horror - H.P. Lovecraft
  • The Shadow over Innsmouth - H.P. Lovecraft


Stay tuned for a shiny new Magnus episode next week!
