What to expect

“The Thing in the Weeds” is a short story by William Hope Hodgson from his “Sargasso Sea Stories” in which he portrays a monster lurking in the darkest recesses of the unfathomable depths of the sea. An example of Lovecraft’s major principle of “fear of the unknown”, the terror in this Hodgson story is a mysterious one, despite the fact that it haunts and kills the characters. Hodgson’s deep reverence and almost awe-inspiring dedication to the sea and its secrets turn “The Thing in the Weeds” into a hauntingly remarkable story that all fans of horror short fiction should read or listen to.
B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.
