The Midnight Reading - “A Fruitless Assignment"

Jul 27, 2016, 01:07 PM

“The Midnight Reading” is a weekly summer supplemental series of dramatic readings of lost classics from the world of dark literature that have inspired our show, Fireside Mystery Theatre. We also want to encourage our listeners to embrace the joy of books and to build their own collection of dark literature.

Our debut episode shines a spotlight on the horror master Ambrose Bierce with his strange and disturbing tale “A Fruitless Assignment” and his dark poem “Weather.”
