The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories from our many masters (and mistresses) of terror. GOTHIC TALES OF TERROR - VOLUME 3. This collection of short stories contains several gothic tales to bear macabre and chilling witness to writers as diverse as Edgar Allan Poe, Rudyard Kipling, Edith Nesbit and MR James. These tales are designed to unsettle you, just a little, as you sit back, and take in their words as they lead you on a walk to places you'd perhaps rather not visit on your own. Our stories are Facts of the Case Of M. Valdemar by Edgar Allan Poe, The Phantom Rickshaw by Rudyard Kipling, Man Size in Marble by Edith Nesbit and Casting The Runes by MR James. Many of these stories are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Word Of Mouth.
The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. They are read for you by Geoff McGivern, Bill Wallis & Richard Mitchley. Index Of Stories - Facts of the Case Of M. Valdemar By Edgar Allan Poe, The Phantom Rickshaw By Rudyard Kipling, Man Size in Marble By Edith Nesbit, Casting The Runes By MR James.
