Summary, etc.: A grown-up's Halloween: fantasies and fables for the philosophically fiendish is an eclectic mix of stories, plays, and sketches dedicated to the thinking paranoiac. Selections include "In a grove," upon which Akira Kurosawa based his classic film, Rashomon; an adult fairy tale by the author of Winnie-the-Pooh; the real story (honest!) behind Edgar Rice Burroughs's novel The moon maid; and cautionary and scary tales from Dostoevsky, Kafka, Mark Twain, and others. Gore, sex, horror, literature, and edifying morals--what more could you want from an audiobook?
