A Wondrous Story

A story about the alchemy of faery, the bridge building between worlds, the power of innocent imagination, the drama of the hidden life. The story is woven of stories and kept in the collection of an Alchemist who discusses it with a friend. A tale about beauty and the terror of the unknown at the edge of existence. The reader created atmosphere, the sound of his voice corresponded very well with the content of the story.

Creepy and beautiful

Who would have thought that horror could be so luminosity beautiful? It's short but definitely worth the credit I spent on it.

If I Only Knew Then...

Story – 3.0 Stars Narration – 4.0 Stars The White People by Arthur Machen may have been something else 110 years ago but, then again, so were airplanes. The only reason I’m happy I listened to this story is that it’s over with. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by stronger stuff but I see no reason why this story is referred to as something to be referred to! Recommendation – if I only knew then what I know now…
