Free Booklet! Podcasts! ‘Strange Tales: Three Uncanny Stories’ by Robert Louis Stevenson

To mark Robert Louis Stevenson Day 2013, the Association for Scottish Literary Studies presents three uncanny stories by Robert Louis Stevenson: ‘Thrawn Janet’, ‘The Tale of Tod Lapraik’, and ‘The Bottle Imp’. These eerie tales of witches, warlocks, and demonic pacts are outstanding examples of the storyteller’s art.

The booklet includes a new Introduction by Jeremy Hodges from the Robert Louis Stevenson Club of Edinburgh, and Scots glossaries by Pauline Cairns Speitel of Scottish Language Dictionaries.

Three of Scotland’s leading authors have recorded their own readings of the stories, and these are also available free online:

Audio iconAlan Bissett reads ‘Thrawn Janet’

Alistair Braidwood and Ian Gregson of Scots Whay Hae! recorded all of our readers at The University of Glasgow. Scots Whay Hae! is a website and podcast which deals with the best of Scottish literature, music and film.

We would like to thank the Robert Louis Stevenson Club of Edinburgh for their kind support of this project.
