Summary

William Fryer Harvey (1885-1937) was an English writer of short stories, particularly in the mystery and horror genres. August Heat is one of his best -nown stories. It tells a most peculiar tale of James Clarence Withencroft, an artist who is inspired to draw a sketch of a prisoner in the dock, being sentenced. Later the same day, he goes out for a walk and happens upon a stonemason's workshop, where he meets the very man he drew in his earlier sketch. The stonemason is working on a tombstone bearing the name of James Clarence Withencroft, with the artist's correct birth date...and a death date of today. What can it all mean? As the story hurtles to its terrifying denoument, the reader is swept breathlessly along with the narrative. Fabulous!

Get past the awful reading and it's excellent

Read this from a book if you can as the story is first class, with a brilliantly written twist at the end; but the reader on the audio is appalling, she us very difficult to follow and it's jarring to listen to her awful cadence. Do get past that, it's only 11 minutes long, though as the story is really worth listening to.

over priced

Although I liked the story , I didn't realize it was only 11 minutes long. I would not have paid $2.76 for it at that length. I will have to pay more attention to length. It would be a nice story for a collection.
