Episode 39- The Dead Travel Fast

March 16th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

If it's Tuesday it must be...Munich?

This week, you'll be delighted to learn that Heather is going to attempt her German accent again.  Do you think it will be better than last time?  You'll have to listen to find out.  The story is from horror legend Bram Stoker, and in fact was first written to be part of his most famous book Dracula.  The story is called "Dracula's Guest".

As we work through the story, we address some important issues.  Like the value of theatre critics, what is the best transition music, and dyslexia 2.0.

"Dracula's Guest" was first published in 1914, 2 years after Stoker's death, as part of the collection Dracula's Guest and Other Weird StoriesBut today, we're reading it out of the book Classic Horror Tales sent to us from Foggy Pine Books.  Visit them at

Promo: Breaking Down Bad Books (Host Nathan also recommended this week's story, so double shout out, please go support him) 

And you can go hear Ken and Heather interviewed in the March 16th episode of Figure it Out with Julia Johnson.

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