Editor reviews

Actor Ivor Hugh delivers this tale of occult justice with chilling understatement and stark, forthright eloquence. The Middle Toe of the Right Foot follows one Mr. Manton, returning to the town where he brutally murdered his wife and children some 10 years prior. Manton is recognized and challenged to a knife duel, to be held at the abandoned house where he killed his family. Instead of a duel, however, Manton finds himself locked in a dark chamber of his former residence. Not the mere practical joke he initially suspected, Manton’s predicament forces a reckoning with the ghosts of his bloodstained past.

Summary

Ambrose Bierce was an American editorialist, journalist, short-story writer, and satirist, who wrote many chilling stories of the supernatural. "The Middle Toe of the Right Foot" is one of his best.
