Publisher's Summary

Here is a terror tale worthy of Lovecraft or Poe, written by a remarkable woman author in 1934!

A rich English gentleman thinks he has found the perfect caretaker for an isolated cottage near the sea: a veteran sailor with a taste for solitude. But when he returns to the cottage months later, the gentleman can find no trace of the caretaker. Then he is savagely attacked by a seagull, normally the most pacifistic of creatures. Next, he encounters a gruesome sight: the corpses of seagulls heaped in a pile on the floor of his apparently abandoned dwelling. Finally, protruding from under the gull's bodies he spies... a human bone! Only in the pages of a confession left behind by the caretaker will he learn the ghastly secret behind all these events.

This is the first-ever audio dramatization of this classic horror tale, with a short introduction about the author Edith Olivier ("The Love Child", "The Night Nurse's Story", "Dead Men's Bones"). Produced in the style of a radio-play with evocative music, exciting special effects and an emotionally stunning climax, it's not to be missed! Adapted for audio and performed by Bill Mills.

    "Bleh!"

    This author was trying very hard to scare and to conjure up horror. I did not get it. I think it is supposed to be a classic so maybe its me but I do not like overly contrived plot details like these.
