Episode 19- Rock ‘n’ Roll Reaper

October 27th, 2020

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Our final regular release in October 2020 is another spooky story.  This one comes to you from American Author Robert William Chambers.  The story "In the Court of the Dragon" leaves our hosts a little confused.  Okay, a lot confused, but it is incredibly engaging and comes from a collection called The King in Yellow.  During their attempt to understand this tale of terror our hosts discuss the quirks of cathedral architecture, learn that "voluntary" doesn't always mean what you think it does, and question just what type of music the devil would play.

And it all kicks off with an impromptu song.

If you already heard this week's True Crimes and a Lie, you can catch the story by jumping to 16:50.

"In the Court of the Dragon" was published in the collection The King in Yellow in 1895.

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