'The Man in the Woods' by Shirley Jackson


My friend Marie Robinson has recorded a special reading of Shirley Jackson’s short story, 'The Man in the Woods'. A dark, mythic tale that takes place in the heart of a mysterious wood, this story conjures echoes of Folk Horror ritualism and is thick with classic fairy tale tropes. Sound effects are weaved subtly throughout the narrative to provide an immersive experience, so it is best listened to with headphones.


Read and recorded by Marie Robinson.
Additional voices provided by Mark Longden (Mr. Oakes) and myself (Christopher).
