Episode 51: Halloween Bonus – The Monkey’s Paw by W.W. Jacobs

It’s a special Halloween treat…or is it a trick? W.W. Jacobs’ “The Monkey’s Paw” was just an ordinary little paw, dried to a mummy. But if used correctly (or incorrectly), it was much more than that.

Also, Rish and Big share a few words about this story, its ending, and a bit more about Halloween.

  1. Can’tsleep,clown’lleatme.

  2. Wow, those adds would give my wife nightmares for weeks. Hmmm, it is halloween…

    Good reading. I’m not sure I ever hear the original story before, though I was familiar with the modernized versions of it. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Rish

    Outstanding reading! That is one of my favorite stories, and you really nailed it.

    And nice artwork on the last episode. Besides sitting in a low lite room filled with clowns and little old ladies, what can’t you do?

  4. Great reading, Rish!

    There are a handful of stories I was made to read in high school that I still love – The Most Dangerous Game, The Lottery (well, that might have been college), Leiningen vs the Ants, To Build a Fire… Come to think of it, they’re all basically horror. Those stories had (still have) a lot of influence on the kind of stuff I liked to write.

  5. Upon further reflection, I cannot help noticing that once again, we have a story that involves a woman going batshit over the loss of a child while her mentally stable husband attempts to hold things together as she plunges them both towards supernatural doom.

    Just once, I’d like to hear a story where the husband becomes unhinged in the face of the supernatural while his wife keeps it together.

  6. Alright, Abbie. Next week . . . “The Shining,” by Stephen King.

    Might be a long episode, though.

  7. Oh, good! I’ll set aside about 10 hours. :)

  8. Seems to be a theme in horror. Or maybe you are just being a little too touchy?

    Or maybe author’s just realize that women love their children more than men. Men are simply self-interested pieces of crap, but women really care, and therefore have so much more to lose.
