Due to bereavement I'm putting ST on hold for now. I'm not sure when things will be back on track. I hope you will bear with me at this difficult time.

'Wailing Well' on BBC Sounds
Here you can find a new reading of M.R. James' classic tale that he read to the Eton Scout Troop - presumably to scare them witless. No, of course boys enjoy grisly tales, and this is one of his nastiest. It's part of a series on the new BBC Sounds app in a series called Classic Stories, and subtitled Stories for Summer.
Another tale by Monty in the same series is...
'Rats'. No prizes if you said 'Mice'. I think both readings are okay, certainly not old-school fulsome, but perfectly acceptable. The whole series offers a ton of good stuff, much of it spooky or otherwise weird.
