The Temple of Death and Other Stories

The great oaken of Death PDFEPUB #188 gate heaved and splintered and a monstrous beast as huge as a horse appeared at the mouth of the den his small head was laid back on his hairy shoulders his little eyes gleamed wickedly and his red mouth opened snarling fiercelyUndes. If you enjoy the stories of EF Benson well you ll probably hate this book as much as I did The three brothers did nominally all write spook stories but only one did it well A certain liveliness of image is almost always ruined here by an overtly Christian moralizing People donate ill gotten buried treasures to build churches that sort of thing A mysterious white figure carries off the now smiling ghost it having faced its misdeeds made on this mortal coil finally from the other side I m sure this sort of dreck was wildly popular among the better classes up until the mid twentieth century A sort of acceptable spiritualismIt s all lost on us now even making so called contemporary inspirational fiction seem sophisticated by comparison

Ervedly the weird and chilling ghost stories of Arthur Christopher Benson and Robert Hugh Benson have been neglected for far too long This volume attempts to rectify that situation This dark banuet of tales takes us to strange unworldly and often archaic environments far. A C Benson and R H Benson have been overshadowed by their popular novelist brother E F Benson but between the three the produced over 100 volumes of fiction and nonfiction This is a collection of stories written by the two less well remembered Bensons during the early Edwardian eraWhile the collection is referred to as ghost stories and described as chilling they are not ghost stories and rarely chilling They are stories of the supernatural simply told and as mentioned further down mainly stories of Christian virtue versus demonic powersA C Benson s creates an excellent atmosphere giving most stories a creepy feeling of dread His stories focus on Christianity triumphing over a supernatural evil and follow the same formula His writing is good but certainly not greatStories by AC BensonThe Temple of Death 35 starsThe Closed Window 45 starsThe Slype House 45 starsThe Red Camp 45 starsOut of the Sea 45 starsThe Grey Cat 35 starsThe Hill of Trouble 45 starsBasil Netherby 35 starsThe Uttermost Farthing 45 starsR C Benson s stories are mostly straight forward Catholicism overcoming Satanic evil The lack the atmosphere of AC Benson s stories but make up for it with well thought out plots His writing is better than his brother s and the narratives flow wellStories by RH BensonThe Watcher 45 starsThe Blood Eagle 35 starsConsolatrix Afflictorium 55 starsOver the Gateway 45 starsFather Meuron s Tale 45 starsFather Macclesfield s Tale 35 starsThe Traveler 45 stars
