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.

"Demetrios Contos" by Jack London tells of London's days dealing with the oyster pirates and fish poachers while working with the Fish Patrol in the waters off San Francisco and Oakland. Demetrios Contos was a Greek fisherman who relied on his catch to make his living. The Fish Patrol was his enemy, but there was a code among them all that demanded fairness, and despite differences in race and nationality, or which side of the law they fell on, they respected one another as men.
