We are pleased to announce that the audiobook of The Hollow Needle and the complete audiobook, The Confessions of Arsene Lupin are now available at the website. If you’re wanting to hear them all in one go, now you can, at classictalesaudiobooks.com.
The Classic Tales App is a great little tool for listening to the podcast. You can easily follow the links in the show notes, and you can see the episode specific artwork that I create for every title. You can also hear the occasional special feature. This app doesn’t interact with the website, though. Just a fair warning. I’ve looked into it, and to create such an app is cost prohibitive at this point. But if you want a quick place to jump and get your classic tales fix, the Classic Tales App is a great place to go.
Last week, we followed our narrator and The Swede down the Danube. They entered an area between Vienna and Pest containing boundless willows, making their way through the innumerable islets that would appear and disappear as the flood ebbed and flowed. Our hero felt that the Willows were ominous, alive, and somehow influenced by a supernatural force. Let’s see how the story plays out.
And now, The Willows, part 2 of 2, by Algernon Blackwood.
