The Lift

The Lift is a bi-weekly podcast dedicated to bringing you amazing stories written by talented independent authors.

Created by  Daniel Foytik – the current voice of The Wicked Library, and writer Cynthia Lowman, the 2015 PARSEC Award Nominated Episode of 9th Story has grown into its own series with The Lift.

The nine story building calls only to those who are meant to find it. It is  dark place whose original luster is now lost to time, the unlikely, old Victorian building sits overlooked by most on the edge of Pittsburgh. Originally built as a luxury residence for some of the city’s most well to do residents, it now serves a different purpose.Within its dilapidated walls sits The Lift. Step inside and ride it to the floor chosen for your transformation.

Don’t be afraid for Victoria, the mysterious girl who operates The Lift, waits to guide you.Choose well, or choose poorly, either will require great sacrifice.
