Ep. 36 – P∃T Shop by Gary Buller


There exist strange things in the word… or is it just our own wistfulness? Tonight we visit a pet shop with a collection that rivals our own curious gallery.  Vic Mullin narrates.

Author Gary Buller is an author from Manchester England where he lives with his long suffering partner Lisa, his daughter Holly and dog Chico. He grew up in the Peak District where the hauntingly beautiful landscapes inspired him to write. He is a huge fan of all things macabre and loves a tale with a twist.

Narrator Vic Mullin is a 40 year old scotsman who is usually surrounded in a cloud of vapour from constant ecig useage. He is generally found spending his time editing YouTube videos or lazing around in New Babbage pretending to build something.

  1. A classic feel to this. I can imagine a quaint, yet sinister, ‘Ye Olde Pet Shoppe’ tucked into a forgotten English village hiding in plain site. Great story and the narration was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed this…

  2. This could not have been produced any other way. Gary Buller must have his own pet shop stuffed into a drawer or perhaps a coat closet in his own him, for all the description; you feel as though he was once really there, making you feel as though you are really there. In the Pet shop. Alone. And, hey, this could not have been read by any one other than Vic Mullin, who brings life to Buller’s writing in a way that an American accent could never do. If you haven’t listened, listen. If you are listening, turn the light out. If you’re sitting in the dark, listening … God save you.

  3. What an enjoyable production. Loved the narration and all the extras–the music and the sound effects. Oh, and the story was great, too. The ending is to die for! One of my cats was listening in and scurried off into the shadows…a fun, spooky time was had by all!

  4. Excellent story. I felt over the main character’s shoulder as we followed his terrifying adventure deeper and deeper into Hell’s pet show. The overall feel was Tales From the Crypt meets Harry Potter. The narrator adds to the overall experience that you’re sitting in a antique gallery of old macabre items, listening to a eccentric shop keep talking about his trophies, and the tales remembered from each. At least that’s how I saw it. Sort of like the old days (not that old, but almost haha) where the kids used to sit around the radio for their favorite show.
