Fantasies and Fables for the Philosophically Fiendish
2007 Audie® Award Finalist - Short Stories/CollectionsA Grown-up’s Halloween: Fantasies and Fables for the Philosophically Fiendish is an eclectic mix of stories, plays, and sketches dedicated to the thinking paranoiac.
Selections include "In a Grove," upon which Akira Kurosawa based his classic film, Rashomon; an adult fairy tale by the author of Winnie-the-Pooh; the real story (honest!) behind Edgar Rice Burroughs's novel The Moon Maid; and cautionary and scary tales from Dostoevsky, Kafka, Mark Twain, and others. Gore, sex, horror, literature, and edifying morals — what more could you want from an audiobook?
