Last week, we met an old buccaneer who died at the Admiral Benbow Inn. Upon searching through the dead man?s sea chest, young Jim Hawkins discovered a certain packet that he secreted away. Shortly afterwards, a band of pirates ransacked the Inn looking for the package that Jim had in his pocket. Jim then went to see Dr. Livesy and Squire Trelawney, to try to make sense of it all.

Treasure Island. This was the first novel that I narrated. Now, 15 years later, with an upgraded mic, studio, and ability, I thought I?d give it another shot.

So much of our pirate lore comes from this book. Dead Man?s chest, a pirate with a parrot that talks, you?ll see. If you missed it the first time around, I hope you like revisiting my old stomping grounds. I must have read this book a dozen times, and it?s always an amazing adventure.

Welcome to Pirate Summer! Our series of piratical tales continues with The Pirates of Penzance! They said it couldn?t be done. They meant it probably shouldn?t be done. Nevertheless, we did it. You are about to hear the first installment of the audiobook version of The Pirates of Penzance. It?s based on the libretto from W. S. Gilbert, of Gilbert and Sullivan fame. I?ve sought to keep all the original material in the libretto, and adding whatever else was necessary to make the tale a narrative, rather than an operetta.

I?ve done this treatment with plays before, but not with operettas. I found it a rare opportunity to really focus on the sharp writing of the piece, once stripped of the beloved music. There?s nothing like live theatre. But here?s something that?s a bit more portable.

And now, The Pirates of Penzance, Part 1 of 2, by W.S. Gilbert.

Welcome to Pirate Summer! Today we have a story taken from Howard Pyle?s Book of Pirates. Howard Pyle was first and foremost an artist. He taught for several years at what became Drexel University, and many noteworthy artists studied under him, including N.C. Wyeth and Frank Schoonover.

Pyle is credited with establishing what has come to be known as the modern stereotype pirate attire. Since there wasn?t much to draw upon as far as historical documentation as to what pirates actually wore, Pyle borrowed largely from gypsy garments and styles to create the pirate look we know today. It?s been criticized as being wildly impractical for actual sailoring.

He wrote and illustrated several books for young adults, including The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, and a four-volume set on the life of King Arthur. He breathed new life into children?s literature, bringing a solid artistic background to his illustrations, raising the genre to a new level.

While today?s story features Captain Henry Morgan, it is a total work of fiction.

Henry James O?Brian Bedford-Jones was a Canadian-American writer of adventure fantasy, science fiction, crime and Westerns in the golden age of pulp magazines. Enormously prolific, he wrote nearly 200 novels, 400 novelettes, and 800 short stories. He used so many pseudonyms that a perfect accounting of all of his works is impossible.

While many writers cranked out reams of adventure stories for the pulps in this period, this story is a standout for several reasons. It?s firstly a story of pirates who have dark pasts, and are trying to go straight. There?s a plucky woman on board, who is anything but a damsel in distress. And the focus on character progression over sensational plot devices is a breath of fresh air. But rest assured, there?s plenty of action. This is a pirate story, after all!

Edith Nesbit wrote under E. Nesbit, and is most famous for her stories for children, and has influenced the likes of J.K. Rowling, C.S. Lewis and P.L. Travers. She wrote over 60 books, including The Railway Children, Five Children and It, and The Story of the Treasure Seekers.

Her second, darker reputations is a purveyor of horror stories, which are sublime in their elegance and simplicity. Today?s story is quite simple, but when you take into account the beauty of the language, the skill of the plot movement, and the intriguing supporting characters, it really ranks high when it comes to classic ghost stories.

G.K. Chesterton is most notable for his creation of Father Brown. This unlooked for, and often unwelcome, detective is actually not a detective. But rather, an individual trained to think as criminals think, for he has heard so many of their confessions. He knows how their minds work, and can piece together many things that others cannot.

Today?s story is from the first collection of Father Brown Stories, the Innocence of Father Brown.

The Crystal Stopper, the fifth installment in the Arsène Lupin series, is now available at http://classictalesaudiobooks.com. The fourth installment, 813, was recently reviewed in Audiofile Magazine. You can pick up 813 and The Crystal Stopper by visiting the links in the details for this week?s episode.  

And now for something completely different.

Welsh author Arthur Machen pioneered the world of Gothic fiction, spanning the distance between Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft. This particular work of classic horror is instrumental in employing the triggering device of occultism, as well as using several different points of view to build a story. This use of various letters to build a cohesive narrative was also used by Victorian authors Wilkie Collins in The Moonstone, Bram Stoker in Dracula, and later by H.P. Lovecraft in The Call of Cthulhu. The concept of a veil that is lifted to reveal a ?world elsewhere? is also a common Victorian story device, as used by George Eliot in ?The Lifted Veil?. Machen moved them all forward.

First published in 1890, it is interesting to consider that when the story?s editor, Clarke, is compiling his volume of proof of the existence of the Devil, he assiduously refrains from using published works. In the compiling of his theory, the use of unpublished works is far more valuable to make his point absolutely clear.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Many, many thanks to those of you who have so generously donated to Basil?s Student Residency fund. We have not only met, but exceeded our goal. We are blown away by your kindness and generosity. Thank you all so much for helping us out. He is over the moon with excitement for this adventure.

It didn?t work. Stealing the policeman?s helmet did not, in fact, make Bertie?s chum Sippy feel better. In fact, he?s now got 30 days in the stir. And in the meantime, Bertie must impersonate him.  P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Many, many thanks to those of you who have so generously donated to Basil?s Student Residency fund. In case you haven?t heard, we recently discovered that Basil, my eldest, after four years at our local art academy, was accepted for a month-long residency to The New York Academy of Art. This is a life changing opportunity. We are so very proud of him.  

We?ve come up a bit short, and we need some help to get him there.

We need to raise $6,000, and we are over halfway there. Thank you so much for helping him out. We?ve been blown away by the generosity of our parents, friends, family members, and especially YOU! We?ve done what we can, but things have kind of slowed down. We?re still $2,000 shy of what we need, and to get us over this final hump, I?ve cooked a little something up.

I?ve recorded the fifth book in the Arsène Lupin series: The Crystal Stopper. I?ve read quite a few of these mysteries, and this one is seriously one of the best. So, here?s what I was thinking. I?m willing to give a free download of the audiobook to each and every donor who donates to Basil?s New York Student Residency Fund, once we reach our goal.

So please step up and help our boy to an experience of a lifetime. You can find a link in the description for today?s podcast. And again, thank you so very much.

Biffy has fallen in love. Well, he fell in love. Then he lost the girl. Like, he couldn?t find her. Then he forgot her last name. And the name of his hotel. Is it really ?better to have loved and lost?? P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Many, many thanks to those of you who have so generously donated to Basil?s Student Residency fund. Last week we discovered that Basil, my eldest, after four years at local art academy, was accepted for a month-long residency to The New York Academy of Art. We are so very proud of him.  

We?ve come up a bit short, and we need some help to get him there.

We need to raise $6,000, and we are halfway there. Thank you so much for helping him out. We?ve been blown away by the generosity of our parents, friends, family members, and especially YOU! We?ve done what we can, but things have really slowed down. We?re still $3,000 shy of what we need to send our boy to New York for the experience of a lifetime.

Basil has actually been on the podcast team. He started proofing the podcast for me when he was in seventh grade, and he did it all through high school. So, if you?ve listened to Pride and Prejudice, Uncle Silas, or the first Arsène Lupin stories, you?ve heard his work.

I?ve set up a Go Fund Me account for Basil, and all of the proceeds go directly to fund his residency. It?s actually not connected to me or the podcast at all. It all goes to help Basil make this next milestone in what is sure to be an illustrious art career. The link can be found in the description of this week?s episode.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

Well, this week, we had one of those amazing moments of a parent?s life. My oldest son, Basil, after four years at his art academy, has been accepted for a month-long residency to The New York Academy of Art. He even got a merit-based scholarship. This is a major milestone in his art career. We are so proud of him.

But here?s the thing. We?ve come up a bit short. We need some help to get him there.

We told him to reach for the stars, and he made it. He even got a scholarship. But we are $6,000 short. If you could pitch in a few bucks, and help get Basil to his New York residency we would really, really appreciate it.

Basil has actually been on the podcast team. He started proofing the podcast for me when he was in seventh grade, and he did it all through high school. So, if you?ve listened to Pride and Prejudice, Uncle Silas, or the first Arsène Lupin stories, you?ve heard his work.

In the spirit of the Olympics, I thought I?d share about how I won a medal for wrestling. Yes, in my youth, I was a wrestler. Mostly because I couldn?t dribble, catch, hit, shoot, or pass. But as a clumsy little 8-year-old in a singlet, I was a pretty below average wrestler. This surprised no one. But once I won a medal. 

I don?t know if you?ve noticed how the bracket system works, but in these competitions of grit and technique, if you win, you go in to the winner?s bracket, and fight more winners. Losers drop to the loser?s bracket where they duke it out for second place.

The thing with this gladiator display was that once I lost my first match, there was no one else in my weight class to wrestle. So, I automatically made it to the end. Every time a new match was announced, there was nobody there. So, I advanced. Until it was all over, and I was given a third place medal. For losing. And honestly, it felt kinda good.

Anyway, let?s get on with the story.

Well, I know it?s been a while since we?ve had some serious literature, and I hope you can hold out with me for one more comedic episodic novel. I discovered that the novel Carry On, Jeeves contains 10 short stories, many of which I haven?t recorded before.

And so, I?m going to go ahead and produce them episodically, as they appear in the original book form. I figured that 10 weeks of Jeeves would be a great way to finally button up this horrible pandemic. Hopefully at the end of this Jeeves bash, we can all breathe a little easier.

We had a great time in our Facebook Live event! Many thanks to all of you who came and visited. We?ll have to do it again soon. If you missed it, I?ll be posting the video up on our YouTube channel in a couple of days

This week?s story is by Stephen Crane, and is often anthologized and taught in high schools. There are a few things that struck me when I researched this book:

When the crew in the boat near land, the approach to safety (land) is the very thing that could kill them, if they are smashed on the rocks. It totally reminded me of our bout with COVID. As we get closer and think that?s okay, but then, no, no, no, that?s too dangerous, get back, get back. Hopefully we can all make it to safety soon.

One of the main themes of this story is the ambivalence of nature, and how we tend to put our human spin on the nature of nature. The story kind of states that nature just doesn?t care about the plight of mankind. In the softer, contemplative moments of the book, it isn?t a gentle providence taking care of the men, and they don?t humbly surrender to it. It?s a harsh, ambivalent nature that could care less if the creatures living on it live or die. But in the end, humanity is humanity. It?s a fascinating look at how we take care of each other in times of crisis.

No one remembered poor Eeyore?s birthday, and Pooh bear and Piglet are determined to do something about it. A.A. Milne, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening.

In today?s story, we discover one of the great things about Winnie the Pooh ? Eeyore. Eeyore has depression. It?s quite clear. But he is never shamed, or left out, or shunned because of it. He?s never told he?s broken, or deficient. His friends just pitch in, and do what they can to make his life a little better. They don?t expect him to act in any certain way after they help him. He?s one of them, period.

The way Eeyore is depicted clearly shows that Milne knew what he was talking about, and is a magnificent way for those suffering with depression to be represented. If you know someone who really loves this book, or Eeyore in particular, there?s probably a lot more going on there. Please tread lightly.

Beatrix Potter was born to a middle-upper class family. She was privately educated by governesses at home, which was usual for the time. She was an incredibly gifted artist, and specialized in mycology, which is the study of fungi. Her beautiful illustrations of various fungi are still consulted by botanists today.

Though she wasn?t allowed to attend university because of her sex, she submitted a paper challenging the theory of symbiosis to the Linnean Society in 1897.

A few years later she self-published her first book, because no publisher was interested in it. She published a few copies for her family and friends. Two years later, in 1902, Frederick, Warne and Company reconsidered publishing her ?bunny book?, as they called it, and The Tale of Peter Rabbit was an immediate success.  

Beatrix Potter loved vacationing in the English lake district near Windermere, and purchased several farms to preserve the landscape of the area. Upon her death, she left nearly all of her property to the National Trust, including over

Well, the day I knew would finally come has finally come. We have come to the end of this book. Now, I told you when we began that it?s been criticized because it has a weak ending. Well, it does. It?s not a good ending. It?s quite likely when you are in a conversation about books that are great, but have really weak endings, this will be the top one that comes to mind. Maybe not, but maybe so.

This book has been so fun. I mean, we?ve had murderous invisible hands, spiders, bats, and the curse with the hair and the orchids. We?ve crawled through an Egyptian pyramid, and discovered Ferrara creating the nefarious incense. I mean, it?s been a fun ride. Let?s just try to remember that as we finish this up.

Last week?s story ended with Dr. Cairn and Sime entering the pyramid of Meydum, and discovering within the secret chamber, Antony Ferrara chanting in an unknown tongue. After Sime shot at Ferrara, Dr. Cairn and Sime chased Ferrara out of the pyramid. Today?s story begins when Robert Cairn meets up with the two, and reports on what he witnessed exiting the pyramid just before his father and Sime appeared.  

Note: in this week's episode, there is some muddiness about romantic consent. Parents might want to take the opportunity to talk about how the hero might have done things better.

A note on our story:

Sax Rohmer?s work is pretty problematic. I mean, there?s no reason to point out that the vampire in last week?s episode was a Jewess for any other reason than being antisemitic. It didn?t add anything to the plot or character. But sentiments such as these shouldn?t go unaddressed. Just want to point that out.

Today?s story is from the creator of the Fu-Manchu series, Sax Rohmer. It was originally titled, The Brood of the Witch-Queen. I think that the unfortunate title is the reason that this book is not more well know today. That, and the ending isn?t super great. Just putting that out there right now. But H.P. Lovecraft compared this book with Bram Stoker?s Dracula, and many critics of the time considered it one of Rohmer?s best. I?ve taken the liberty of releasing it as Knight of the Necropolis. Hopefully ol? Sax isn?t turning too much in his grave at that.

One of the things that really draws me to classic Halloween monsters is that they are steeped in literature. Obviously, Dracula and Frankenstein immediately come to mind with their respective baddies. There are many werewolf short stories, from Kipling?s The Mark of the Beast, to Murryat?s The White Wolf of the Harz Mountains. Alexandre Dumas even wrote a full length, lack luster novel about a werewolf, clumsily translated as The Wolf Leader. I?m told Steinbeck also wrote a werewolf yarn.

Mummy tales also abound in short fiction. Among the best are Conan Doyle?s Lot No. 249, Louisa May Alcott?s The Ring of Thoth, and H.P. Lovecraft?s Imprisoned with the Pharaohs. Among the less successful is Bram Stoker?s novel Jewel of the Seven Stars.

Now, today?s story isn?t perfect by any means. It?s not high literature. But when I read it, I felt that it really delivered the same feeling that I get when I watch the original movie of The Mummy, with Boris Karloff. It?s set up as a series of adventures where we can eventually piece together the identity of that devotee of ancient sorcery: Antony Ferrara. The similarities to Dracula are evident. Nobody believes in Egyptian sorcery, there?s only one scholar who?s studied enough to stop him, etc.. But what can I say, when it comes to magic rings, brain-eating beetles, vampires, ancient curses, Egyptian mummies, and the like, I?m always up for it. I hope you are, too.

In this fourth adventure, Arsène Lupin seeks to firmly establish himself as the anti-hero, though he clearly wants to be the hero.
