David Poindexter's Disappearance and Other Tales


Read by Ben Tucker

(4.9 stars; 5 reviews)

Julian Hawthorne, son of famed author Nathaniel Hawthorne, brings together a collection of stories of tragedy, lost love and occasionally of the supernatural. From the sad and bitter remembrances and grim twists of fate of tales like "Set Not Thy Foot on Graves", "Doctor Carajo's Patient" and "A Strange Friend" to the dalliance with a doppelgänger in "David Poindexter's Disappearance", these stories provide the heights of melodramatic woe. Of special note in this collection is the melancholy and atmospheric vampire tale "Ken's Mystery", often cited as one of Julian Hawthorne's best stories and a much anthologized and acclaimed story among the works of the undead.
