A Masterpiece

by on Feb 23, 2012

This very short story was first published in 1902. Acclaimed as a masterpiece of horror and suspense genre. Still published as a masterpiece and studied as a teaching text and guide for students of english classic literature. You see no monsters or horrible sights, just the readers imagination of impeding horror. All in a short, i.e. 15 minute reading. Clearly, inspired Edgar Allen Poe and Stephen King. Embodies Hindu mysticism and predestination. Read it late at night. Alone, in a quiet house. afraid.
