Must listen again

I fear I was not paying close enough attention so I will endeavor to listen again. The reader was so very good that I'm afraid I got caught up in the telling, more than the story.

Old-style horror story

Classic horror story set in British India. Starts out a bit like P. G. Wodehouse, with what seems like upper-class/colonial British twittery in India, but then turns gruesome. The narration is brisk, clear, and very well-suited to the content.

A Period Horror Tale

This is another great classic “horror” story from renowned author Rudyard Kipling. While not as frightening today, this tale is set during the British occupation of India, it is beautifully narrated by BJ Harrison and very entertaining.

Creepy

A genuinely creepy story that compares well with the work of other masters of weird fiction, such as HP Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe. A white farmer in India is punished for his crass disrespect of a monkey god. A battle ensues between the mysterious powers of a deformed leper and the brute force of their English colonists. Rudyard Kipling is cited by horror writer Nail Gaiman as a major influence, and you can see why from this terrific little spine chiller. A crisp and well paced reading by B.J. Harrison.
