The Hand | [Guy de Maupassant]

The Hand

A withered, shriveled, severed human hand is kept chained in a corner. The "owner" of this morbid trophy always keeps three loaded revolvers in the same room. Nothing seems too suspicious until the hand is mysteriously reclaimed.

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "Just a scary story"

    This is not at all a bad short story, but it was a bit predictable. The narration is excellent but this is a rather simple scary story with little else going for it. If you are in the mood for a short campfire story this is not worth a credit, but at $0.58 it was worth the listen.
