The paw of a dead monkey is a talisman that grants its possessor three wishes, but the wishes come with an enormous price for interfering with fate. One of the most famous horror stories of all time!

My taste differs from kid books to gory horror books.
This is a classic written in 1902. It is a very good story. The problem is, you have seen it numerous times. It is so good that the story has been copied over and over again.
Then again it is less then 50 cents, what can you buy for 50 cents.
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
A good creepy short. Be careful what you wish for, karma may be more important than you think.
I have seen this as a movie on Syfy. It was pretty good, they were able to extend it into something a little more enjoyable. The narrator was not one I would enjoy listening to again. He read very fast and without much emotion or enthusiasm. If there were another narrator, it could possibly be a much better listen.
