B.J. Harrison hosts The Classic Tales Podcast.
It’s New York in the 1920s, and Nick Carraway begins erecting the scaffolding of one of the greatest American novels. F. Scott Fitzgerald, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Scott Fitzgerald, in the special features for today’s episode. And if it’s more convenient, we are streaming our episodes through YouTube, now. A link can be found in the comments section for today’s episode. Today’s episode is the first of five where we will be presenting F. Scott Fitzgerald’s immortal The Great Gatsby. This piece is a little edgier than the stuff we usually present. The themes deal largely with racism, and socio-economic elitism. There’s also some rougher language, just so you have a heads up. It’s a treat to read Fitzgerald as a narrator, because he has such a masterful command of the language. There’s a lovely rhythm with the words he chooses, and cadence to his prose that really lends itself to being reading aloud. I hope you like it. And now, The Great Gatsby, part 1 of 5, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Tap here to go to www.classictalesaudiobooks.comand become a financial supporter!   Tap here to go to our merchandise store!   Tap here to visit our YouTube Channel:

I’m hoping to resume producing more audiobooks of classic novels like I did in the past. I need to dedicate a week every month to it. My goal is to produce a standalone audiobook every month, like I used to. I’d love to do all of the Lupin novels, and do all the stories of Sherlock Holmes, John Carter of Mars, and tackle some Henry James and more Jane Austen and Victor Hugo. So, if you can swing it, please become a financial supporter. This is where I’d like to use your monthly contribution. And if you can’t do that, please tell a friend about us. I’d just love to get more classic literature into the ears of more people. And on that note, it’s looking like The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne will be coming to the store soon. Here’s the thing, though. I only narrated the introduction. The great Nancy Peterson narrates the rest. Nancy is an Audie Award Winner, which is the Oscar of audiobooks. She’s absolutely stellar, and I was very humbled to be able to work with her. I’ll let you know when The Scarlet Letter is available. And now, Edith Swan-neck, by Maurice Leblanc.

Tap here to visit our YouTube Channel: Now, for today’s story. Edgar Allan Poe. I don’t think he actually “invented” the mystery or horror genres, but he definitely lifted the existing genres of his time to largely resemble how they largely look today. I’m comfortable in saying he defined them. The consulting detective of today is essentially a refined version of his vision. And he is still held as the master of the horror short story. Today’s story, Hop-Frog, isn’t largely anthologized, and can be difficult to find. It wasn’t brought to my attention until a listener recommended it to me years ago. It moves very well, and has a smart, original finish. It’s a rare gem that is largely unmentioned in Poe’s short story canon, and I’m thrilled to present it to you. And now, Hop-Frog, by Edgar Allan Poe.
