164. Sredni Vashtar

164. Sredni Vashtar

Sredni Vashtar went forth,
His thoughts were red thoughts and his teeth were white.
His enemies called for peace, but he brought them death.
Sredni Vashtar the Beautiful.

Happy All Hallow’s Eve Eve, fiends! Here’s a truly weird little item for ya! In this episode The Bookening reads Sredni Vashtar by Saki (H. H. Munro). It’s a good story by a good writer who people aren’t as familiar with as they should be.  It’s also part 3 of our weeklong Spook-tacular!
