Welcome to 1001 Classic Short Stories and Tales Audio Podcast!  This is a hand-picked collection of favorites from writers like Jack London, Louisa May Alcott, Hans Christian Anderson, Edgar Allen Poe, Rudyard Kipling, and many more. I narrate the stories and often add background music and sound effects to bring the stories to life. These are suitable for the entire family, enjoyed by all ages and levels of literary experience, and often make great discussion starters for students who are just getting exposed to literature. 

For all of you who love a good story, we hope you come back again and again, and please share our show with others!

In this excellent sci-fi short storyby Ray Bradbury, a hunter named Eckels pays $10,000 to a time machine safari service to bag the ultimate trophy. The company guarantees his safety but not his return...and sets strict rules so as not to upset the balance of nature in the past...which may affect the present in terrible ways. In a career spanning more than 70 years, Bradbury inspired generations of readers to think, dream, and create. A prolific author of short stories and close to 50 books, Bradbury was one of the most celebrated writers of our time.
