Classic American Short Stories Audiobook

Classic American Short Stories

Represented here are 16 short stories by seven great American writers, dating from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Different in atmosphere and writing style, they nevertheless caught the mood and concerns of the day in a way that was distinctly American. Kate Chopin's 'Regret' is a reflective moment in the life of a woman without children, forced to look after children; Bierce's 'An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge' leaves echoes in the imagination; the stories by Crane and London recall the themes of the Civil War and the Klondike for which they are well known. Twain's humor is to the fore in 'The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County' and O. Henry's sharp observation makes his neat tales a joy to listen to. There is even an elegiac description of an eclipse by James Fenimore Cooper, author of The Last of the Mohicans. Read with sensitivity and skill by Garrick Hagon, Liza Ross and William Roberts

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge Audiobook

An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge

Author: Ambrose Bierce Narrator: Kyle Munley Release Date: December 2013

Set during the American Civil War, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” is the classic short story of Peyton Farquhar, a Confederate sympathizer condemned to death by hanging from Owl Creek Bridge. Flashing between the present and the past—from Peyton’s thoughts as he stands on the bridge to his memories as a major Confederate supporter in the South—he creates parallel realities in which truth and fantasy become indistinguishable. A story of war, death, and the power of the mind, “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” is Ambrose Bierce’s most anthologized work and an enduring piece of American literature. “[‘An Occurrence at Owl Cree Bridge’] is a flawless example of American genius.”—Kurt Vonnegut

A Bite of Bierce Audiobook

A Bite of Bierce

Author: Ambrose Bierce Narrator: Robert Bethune, Susie Berneis Release Date: December 2007

Five wonderful stories by Ambrose Bierce, full of vivid characters, precise and evocative language, surprises and suspense. Written more than a century ago, these stories still capture the imagination with vivid, precise language that bites--and may even draw blood! This Freshwater Seas production presents these five classic stories performed by Susie Berneis and Robert Bethune, with subtle musical underscoring to enhance and enrich Bierce's words. Included: "Staley Fleming's Hallucination," in which we meet the ghost of a Newfoundland dog with a white forefoot--and hungry for revenge! "The Damned Thing," in which we meet a wild, ferocious animal determined to drive a man off his land--or or drive him insane, once he realizes the strange truth about the danger he faces. "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," in which a life, flashing before the eyes, and a miraculous escape from certain death, suddenly becomes--something else entirely in Bierce's strangest and most famous fantasy. (By the way, in 1963 a movie version of this by Paul De Roubaix and Marcel Ichac won the Academy Award for live action short subject, and the Twilight Zone version of it is, of course, justly famous.) "Diagnosis of Death:" A doctor whose incredibly accurate diagnoses are not at all conducive to a long and healthy life. "The Boarded Window:" A window forever boarded up; a love forever gone. A Freshwater Seas production.
