Summary

When Sergeant Major Morris brings a mummified monkey’s paw to the White family, they embrace it as a morbid curiosity. When they learn that an old Fakir has enchanted the paw, they continue to treat the thing lightly. But the workings of the paw, once set in motion, cannot be undone, no matter what they try.

Be careful what you wish for

Be very specific with your wishes because it will turn out bad.
Great narration, once again, from B.J. Harrison.
Didn’t expect the end. More about the suspense and not seeing than the gore.

A story to tell around the campfire

a short story that reminds me of sitting around the campfire with a bunch of Boy Scouts and telling scary stories. this story is not too scary but scary enough to get the imagination going for a young teenage boy.

Great reading of the classic

Perfect short story for getting in the mood for Halloween.

Great narration. This is a recording from his podcast "The Classic Tales Podcast" where he reads public domain works.
