The Bookening reads The Willows by Algernon Blackwood.

Show Notes

Our heroes recorded this episode at the end of a long session and they may or may not have been a little stir crazy, as you'll hear. However ...

Now THIS is how you write a horror story. After a weeklong foray into scary short stories, our heroes finally hit gold with Algernon Blackwood's much-anthologized "The Willows." And believe us, it's much-anthologized for a reason. The reason being that ... it's great! It taps into real fears, with subtlety and taste. Nice to end our week Spook-tacular on a high note.

What is The Bookening?

3 guys—a pastor, a scholar, and their gleeful provocateur—discuss the great books. We take God and literature seriously—but the second one not overly so.
