Old Temples and Fakirs and Jugglers
If you were given the gift of but one wish, one wish in this whole wide world, what would it be?
If you've just shrieked "Wildly rich! Rich beyond the dreams of avarice!", then I fear I can't oblige you. If, instead, you offered the more modest answer of "Why, only for 'The Monkey's Paw' to be subject of the next Dreadful Thoughts Story Club!" then consider your wish fulfilled.1
Read it, rehearse some witty things to say, and return to this damn'd spot on Monday, May 5th Tuesday, May 6th, at 9 pm. As always, newbies/virgins are most welcome.
In other (related) news a second volume in the Dreadful Thoughts Mixtape series has been initiated. It can be found here and, like before, your contributions are needed. For login details, leave a comment or mail me.
It sits snugly beside the DT badge on the strap of my bag and, so far, they are getting along famously. I shall treasure it.
Story: "The Monkey's Paw"
Meeting: Monday, May 5th, Tuesday, May 6th, 9 p.m.
