A Medusa, a secret meeting, and a murder – can Petrie and Smith decipher these clues before it’s too late? Sax Rohmer, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

This year, we’ve had the entire novel of “The Inimitable Jeeves”, a collection of scary stories, and now we’re winding up “The Hand of Fu-Manchu”. The choice of stories is actually quite a complex kind of art. There are many people who do similar things now, who simply look for the most downloaded public domain books, or similar lists. But I’ve actually read these books. I love them, if you couldn’t already tell. They mean so much to me, and I love to share them with you.

These titles may not all be at the top of the highbrow book lists. But I believe they all have something to offer. They all mark a point where we once were as a culture. And as history repeats itself, as it invariably does, I find it poignant to revisit the tales written from ages past to instruct those struggling with the same struggles.

If you have enjoyed The Classic Tales over the years, if you feel that this is a good service, if they have made you think about things you otherwise maybe wouldn’t have, please go to classictalesaudiobooks.com and become a supporting member. With the burning of the Notre Dame cathedral, I’d really like to finish up The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Please become a supporting member, and help us to start up the Enchiridion again.

Again, the website is classictalesaudiobooks, all one word, dot com.

The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius continue in the special features of this week’s episode in the Classic Tales App. In the app, tap on the box with a bow on the left when you play the episode. That’s the special features area. It’s like a present!

Today we continue our series of The Hand of Fu-Manchu, by Sax Rohmer.

As with last week, and during the run of this series, as you run into objectionable stuff today, feel free to talk about it with your friends. Point out the problems with your kids. Racism thrives in the darkness. Let’s clean this out of our culture through honest and informed discussion.

 

And now, The Hand of Fu-Manchu, part 7 of 8, by Sax Rohmer.
