Publisher's Summary

This episode of The Shadow was originally broadcast on September 26, 1943.

"Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!" From 1930-1954, the wealthy Lamont Cranston was one of the best-known characters on radio, using his mystical powers to fight crime. The only person who knew The Shadow's true identity was his "friend and companion, the lovely Margot Lane". Through the years, The Shadow was portrayed by Frank Readick, Orson Welles, Bill Johnstone, Bret Morrison, and others. As listeners were reminded at the end of every episode, "The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay! The Shadow knows!"

What the Critics Say

"As one of the basic prototypes of what has come to be called Pop Art, the Shadow is unique and irreplaceable, a legend in his own time. A classic character who looms slouch hat and shoulders above all others of his kind, he is an inevitable as a guilty conscience, an unseen power that awakens within all of us our most deep-rooted fears of mortal retribution. There has never been a force quite like him." (Jim Harmon, The Great Radio Heroes)

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    They visit Margo's aunt but she is no where to be found. The dark forest is said to be haunted and whose who enter may not come out.

    Story
    "The Most Horrific Episode Hands Down!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Gibbering Things to be better than the print version?

    A print version could not do this story justice.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The errie effects it has on the listeners.


    Which character – as performed by Bret Morrison – was your favorite?

    Why Lamont Cranston/the Shadow of coarse!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me uneasy the first time I listened to it as I was on a long drive at night, alone.


    Any additional comments?

    This episode demands a re-listen every so often because it still strikes fear in the hearts of men, literally!
