The Night-Born

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.7 stars; 20 reviews)

Ten short stories on various themes and subjects, all more or less bizarre.

The Night-Born is about a woman who draws inspiration to change her life from an article she chanced to read.

In The Benefit of the Doubt, a crooked judge gets a lesson in justice.

When The World Was Young is the story of Primitive Man and Civilized Man sharing the same body.

And so on. Each story is unique and thought-provoking. (Summary by TriciaG) (5 hr 28 min)
