'The Striding Place' (1895) tells the story of a man who is searching for his best friend, who's gone missing. The search takes him to a dangerous waterfall in the forest called The Strid, from which many have fallen and drowned. There he discovers something most terrifying and surreal.

Terrible Narration

The narrator’s awkward cadence, and insistence of dragging out the final word of each sentence made listening to this almost unbearable. It seems a good story, so it is a shame that the narrator ruined it for me.
