Best place to start…

starskullLOGO.pngPeople ask me where to start listening,
I say listen to the show newest to oldest.
It will sound as if the host is losing his mind,
as opposed to recovering from a eye/head injury.

The show becomes more rambly and incoherent,
as anxiety and insomnia take over…

The Readings are good too.

Reading #47: In the Penal Colony

r47.jpg

 

AUDIO FIXED
In the Penal Colony” (“In der Strafkolonie“) (also translated as “In the Penal Settlement”) is a short story by Franz Kafka written in German in October 1914, revised in November 1918, and first published in October 1919.

The story is set in an unnamed penal colony. Internal clues and the setting on an island suggest Octave Mirbeau‘s The Torture Garden as an influence. As in some of Kafka’s other writings, the narrator in this story seems detached from, or perhaps numbed by, events that one would normally expect to be registered with horror. “In the Penal Colony” describes the last use of an elaborate torture and executiondevice that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of twelve hours. As the plot unfolds, the reader learns more and more about the machine, including its origin and original justification.

Imprisoned with the Pharaohs by HP Lovecraft

(AUDIO FIXED!!!)
Imprisoned with the Pharaohs” (called “Under the Pyramids” in draft form, also published as “Entombed with the Pharaohs“) is a short story written by American fantasy author H. P. Lovecraft in February 1924. Commissioned by Weird Tales founder and owner J. C. Henneberger, the narrative tells a fictionalized account in the first-person perspective of an allegedly true experience of escape artist Harry Houdini. Set in 1910, in Egypt, Houdini finds himself kidnapped by a tour guide, who resembles an ancient pharaoh, and thrown down a deep hole near the Great Sphinx of Giza. While attempting to find his way out, he stumbles upon a gigantic ceremonial cavern and encounters the real-life deity that inspired the building of the Sphinx.

Lovecraft accepted the job because of the money he was offered in advance by Henneberg. The result was published in the May–June–July 1924 edition of Weird Tales, although it was credited solely to Houdini until the 1939 reprint. Despite Lovecraft’s use of artistic license, Houdini enjoyed the tale and the two men collaborated on several smaller projects prior to the latter’s death in 1926. “Imprisoned with the Pharaohs” has been suggested as an early influence on author Robert Bloch and as anticipating the cosmic themes in Lovecraft’s later work, including “The Shunned House“.
