Chapter 18: “The Devil’s Jest”


Weird fruits, part two – the paw paw.  After that, Alan reads a yarn of a dying man’s confession to a conveniently placed burglar.  This week’s genre: Suspense.

“The Devil’s Jest” by Robert Terry Shannon comes from the pages of Argosy All-Story Weekly, Dec 15th, 1923, and it concerns the revenge of a man who gets his medical advice from Dr Oz and definitely needs a subscription to the Times.  So curl up in your favorite hospice bed with a glistening revolver as we read you this week’s tale.
