The Saturday Night Special: “At the End of the Passage” by Rudyard Kipling

The sky is lead and our faces are red, And the gates of Hell are opened and riven, And the winds of Hell are loosened and driven, And the dust flies up in the face of Heaven, And the clouds come down in a fiery sheet, Heavy to raise and hard to be borne. And … Continue reading The Saturday Night Special: “At the End of the Passage” by Rudyard Kipling

The Saturday Night Special: “Nemesis” by H.P. Lovecraft (1918)

                    Through the ghoul-guarded gateways of slumber, Past the wan-mooned abysses of night, I have lived o'er my lives without number, I have sounded all things with my sight; And I struggle and shriek ere the daybreak, being driven to madness with fright. I have whirled … Continue reading The Saturday Night Special: “Nemesis” by H.P. Lovecraft (1918)

The Saturday Night Special: “A Ghost Story” by Mark Twain (1870)

The place had long been given up to dust and cobwebs, to solitude and silence. I seemed groping among the tombs and invading the privacy of the dead, that first … Continue reading The Saturday Night Special: “A Ghost Story” by Mark Twain (1870)

The Saturday Night Special: “The Kit-Bag” by Algernon Blackwood (1908)

When the words 'Not Guilty' sounded through the crowded courtroom that dark December afternoon, Arthur Wilbraham, the great criminal KC, and leader for the triumphant defence, was represented by his junior; but Johnson, his private secretary, carried the verdict across to his chambers like lightning. 'It's what we expected, I think,' said the barrister, without … Continue reading The Saturday Night Special: “The Kit-Bag” by Algernon Blackwood (1908)
