Over five years ago, John created an audio drama series with the intention of making it a regular occurrence. It didn’t happen, but now John is almost done with his grad school work and can devote his time more to a project such as this. Because of that, he is releasing the first five episodes to get everyone on board with the story.
In 1977, the United States government determined that one in every ten million Americans was gifted with a paranormal ability. It immediately set up a commission to look into the growing phenomenon. It was decided that a special, top-secret research facility was needed to study the matter further. Today, in a world where the paranormal is normal, the unexpected happens within the walls of The Dome. In the premiere episode, “Avatar”, a tragic accident inside the walls of The Dome leads to a visit by a senator with many questions. Meanwhile, a ghostly image that has been moving through the corridors of the complex visits the widow of one of the victims of the accident with news of what really happens in the examination rooms of The Dome.
