I've got a reading of this short story as an MP3-file, though I can not remember where I acquired it. The reader is pretty good, though, and I would recommend it if I knew the his name. :tongue:

The first time I listened to it it didn't have much effect on me. The second time, just last week, I was listening to it while falling asleep, and listening to the description of The Stranger while in a state of hypnagogia scared the shit out of me.

This story made me hungry :)

But it's a nice one nevertheless.

Short stories are nearly a lost art. This was a good one.

It looks like it was read for BBC Radio Read by Doug Cockle.

Here is a legal download for purchase, if you don't want to :pirate:

Just picked up a 1936 copy of this for about $6.  Nice addition to the collection. :)
