Children of Horror,

Commanded by a child, Civil War ghosts stalk silently through moonlit forests. A son, a crazed lunatic, and a sad ghost each tell how a woman was murdered.  And, a man comes to terms with his permanent residence, as we bring back the ghost of Ambrose Bierce…just in time for Christmas.

Tonight, we present in the Christmas spirit, “An Inhabitant of Carcosa”. This short story by master storyteller Ambrose Bierce was first published in the San Francisco Newsletter of December 25, 1886. Later it was reprinted as part of two of Bierce’s collections—”Tales of Soldiers and Civilians” and “Can Such Things Be?

The story is told by an unknown narrator traveling in an unfamiliar wilderness. He hails from the ancient city of Carcosa and awakens from a fever-induced sleep to find himself lost.

Can our narrator ever find his way back to Carcosa? And, if he should, will he re-kindle a little of the ghosts of Christmas past?–JL
