Creepy

A genuinely creepy story that compares well with the work of other masters of weird fiction, such as HP Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe. A white farmer in India is punished for his crass disrespect of a monkey god. A battle ensues between the mysterious powers of a deformed leper and the brute force of their English colonists. Rudyard Kipling is cited by horror writer Nail Gaiman as a major influence, and you can see why from this terrific little spine chiller. A crisp and well paced reading by B.J. Harrison.

Must listen again

I fear I was not paying close enough attention so I will endeavor to listen again. The reader was so very good that I'm afraid I got caught up in the telling, more than the story.

Remarkable.

All my life I have read the poetry of Rudyard Kipling, even memorized some, hoping for a cleansing of my soul, poems like "If". That is why this tale into horror, brilliantly conceived and written, took me by surprise. So I will be going back to explore all his works.....maybe Jewels await me!
