The story so far: Young Beautrelet has uncovered a plot of Arsene Lupin’s to steal certain valuable paintings from M. de Gevres, replacing them with copies. During the heist, M. Daval, M de Gevres’ secretary was killed, and a man was shot while trying to escape. The wounded man was never found or traced – he simply disappeared.

Last week, there was a late night struggle in the mansion of M de Gevres, and his secretary, M. Daval, was found dead. M de Gevres was unharmed, but a man was seen on the grounds carrying something. Before he got too far, he was shot by a witness from the house. He apparently remained trapped in the grounds, but was never discovered. Young Isidore Beautrelet, a local student, posed as a local journalist, and seemed to have a peculiarly intimate knowledge of the case. Let’s see what he can tell us.

App users can hear a reading of The Cask of Amontillado, by Edgar Allan Poe. The story is reference several times in Bradbury’s story, as well as many works by Ambrose Bierce and H.P. Lovecraft.

Today’s story originally released in the Summer issue of Planet Stories in 1948.

Last week, William Lantry awoke from his coffin in a graveyard. He was dead, yet he could move and speak. The year was 2348 or so, and he’d been dead around 350 years. The new world had no graveyards, and all bodies were burned in a great Incinerator, which made a pillar of fire to the heavens. Along with the graveyards, fear, superstition, and macabre imagination were also sterilized in this new world. So Lantry came up with a plan – to destroy the Incinerators, and create an army of living dead “friends”.

And now, Pillar of Fire, Part 2 of 2, by Ray Bradbury.
