The Frightened was a radio program broadcast in the late 1950s. During 1956 Lyle Kenyon Engel put together a package of two radio
shows and four magazines. The shows were American Agent, a spy drama, and The Frightened, narrated by Boris Karloff; the magazines included Tales of the Frightened,
a tie in to the radio show. The publisher, Republic Features Syndicate, went out of business in late 1957.
