Standing sword to sword with his enemy, will Andre-Louis finally have his revenge?   Raphael Sabatini, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

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

Thank you to all of our financial supporters. We couldn’t do this without you. With the pandemic being what it is, with no end in sight, we need your help more than ever. Thank you so much for stepping up, and helping to keep us going strong.

In case you haven’t already, feel free to take advantage of our free titles. We have a few short stories and a few full length novels available free for your enjoyment.

You can find the free audiobooks here:

I actually need your help. I’m working in an initiative to make my library of Classic Tales audiobooks available to public schools for free. To help with this, I’m collecting stories from listeners who have been helped in one way or another by The Classic Tales Podcast. Have you run into new authors? Have you revisited a story that resonated with you deeply? Or, like me, in discovering audiobooks, did you become a better reader?

If you have a story you’d like to share, please go to the website at, and share your story by sending us a missive in the appropriate area.

My hope is that when educators hear how beneficial these stories can be, they will more easily adapt them into their curriculum. They may also help with remote learning in these uncertain times. Thank you for your help.

Thank you to Annie, from the Join us in France Podcast, who helped with the pronunciations of the French names and phrases for this week’s episode. If you’re interested in France at all, you should check out her show. It’s fantastic.

App users can hear a “On My First Son”, by Ben Jonson. A poem he wrote when his seven-year-old son died. You’ll find it in the special features area of the Classic Tales app.

(Some of) the story so far:

Last week it became evident that Andre-Louis and the Marquis de la Tour d’Azyr would definitely have a duel at the Bois de Boulogne. Neither could or would withdraw. Today’s episode begins with M. de Kercadiou’s last ditch attempt to dissuade Andre-Louis from this fateful, and potential deadly encounter.
