PDP #18 - The Walrus and the Carpenter by Lewis Carroll

I've always liked this poem and find myself thinking of it whenever about to broach a subject... "The time has come..."

I suppose it's an odd choice for Thanksgiving week for the US folks, but one can be thankful one is not an oyster!

If you lived in New England, you might eat turkey with oyster stuffing. Or so I hear.

Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving.
I might be a little forward in asking for more along the lines of the Hodgson story but I did find it to be rather satisfying in a spooky bed time story sort of way.
Regardless, keep up the good work. You are exposing this weary soul to some interesting literature.

Banshee, that's quite true about the stuffing, a friend of mine who used to live in New York also mentioned it to me.

steelworx, I liked the Hodgson story too and will definitely be doing more of his works about Carnacki. It will most likely be sometime after Christmas.

Oh Steelworx I totally agree. I loved the Hodgson story. I walk while I'm listening to these stories, and though I enjoyed the Master of the World very much, I was totally rivited by the Monster. I found myself with my hands pressed against my headphones and talking shuffling steps instead of my usual enthusiastic strides. It was wonderful. Thank you so much E and have a lovely Christmas.
