Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

Spooky Short, Beautifully Performed

This was a wonderful spooky short story about an eerie hand. A classic horror story, beautifully performed by B J Harrison. Very entertaining and definitely worth hearing.

Classic

Would you try another book from Guy de Maupassant and/or B.J. Harrison?

Yes, its a classic and well acted out.

Did The Hand inspire you to do anything?

Yes, scare the poo out of my niece and nephew.
