The Black Goat is a short story that takes on a contemporary approach of the legend of Van Hunks and the devil.
Jan van Hunks is down and out, a functioning alcoholic who is battling a divorce from his wife. One wintry night, he decides to escape the clutches of his studio apartment in the heart of Cape Town and venture out to find the darkest bar he can. He meets a mysterious character along the way who advises him against his journey. Van Hunks doesn't heed this advice and ventures into an old pub called The Black Goat, where he encounters someone or something of immense evil....
A great short story for any fans of the horror and film noir genres!

i think I have read this story a few hundred times in my life. Very clichéd, but it is well written and the narrator has a wonderful voice. If I had read it instead of listened to it I probably would have quit at Chapter One but the audible experience made it worth listening to
