As the visitor to Lorraine Castle tells its two elderly caretakers, he does not believe in ghosts and will prove it by spending the night in the Red Room. Their parting words to him are that he is doing it by his own choosing. He moves away, smug with confidence. But as he ascends the spiral stairs with a single candle, what he senses around him begins to fill him with a growing, unnamable fear.

Once seated and awaiting a quiet night in the room, illuminated by more candles he has found and the newly lighted fireplace, a candle is abruptly extinguished. And then another. And then... Download and start listening now!

    " A psychological thriller that is short, sweet and to the point. Good scary fun! "

    " Many points for multiple uses of the phrase "The Man with the Withered Arm"; but otherwise, not so overwhelmingly creepy or insightful. Sorry, H.G., we love ya anyway, holla atcha boy. "

    " Creepy piece of victorian-esqe horror, dealing with fear itself. "

About the Author

H. G. Wells (1866–1946), born in Bromley, Kent, England, was apprenticed to a drygoodsman and a druggist before he made his way to the Royal College of Science where he studied biology. Known as the father of science fiction, he was also a prolific writer in other genres, including contemporary novels, history, and social commentary. As a spokesman for progress and peace, his middle period novels (1900–1920) were more realistic and covered lower-middle-class life, suffrage, and the emergence of feminist ideals that pushed against the limits set by male-dominated society.
