Campfire Classics Podcast

A Literary Comedy podcast where we try to read those books that look good on your shelf…and laugh a lot along the way!

Episode 16- The Purpose of My Coming

October 6th, 2020

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

For most of you, welcome back!

Algernon Blackwood was a wildly influential writer whose admirers include SciFi and Fantasy greats J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft! This week's Campfire Classic is his story "The Wood of the Dead".  The writing is incredible and our hosts are enthralled, but do get a little off topic.  Surprise surprise.  They discuss book burning, forget how old they are, and try to decide how much tramping is too much tramping.


"The Wood of the Dead" is part of Blackwood's 1906 collection The Empty House and Other Ghost Stories.

So sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.
