Okay, so here’s the added wrinkle to this year’s incarnation of 32 Days of Halloween, before we get to tonight’s feature presentation. Because I wanted to do something else this year, I’ve decided that everyday I’m going to record and post a reading of a story that fits in with the season. Some are going to be of my own invention, but most are going to be some classic bits like this one: Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven.” I’m not Vincent Price, but I give it a whirl. Let me know what you think.[audio:http://www.needcoffee.com/podcasts/raven.mp3]
Also, if you have anything you’d like me to read, I’m taking requests. The parameters are: can’t be novel-length, because I mean, come on–and has to be something I can legally, you know, publish a thing of me reading it. Public domain is great, creative commons also good, or whatever. So leave a comment here if you’d like me to consider what’s what. But hurry, I’m already filling up slots.
By the way, we’ve mentioned the actual pet of Charles Dickens that inspired the poem before. Which is kind of a cool story.
