A tale that starts off with a misdirection, a bear definitely overstays it’s welcome, strange poems, and even stranger tales of a detective who betrays an old woman. Mates, this whole episode is wacky and strange – not over the top, but just has bizarre stories. I bring you tales from Cobwebs of an Empty Skull by Dod Grile published in 1874.

I have to say this guy writes ahead of his time, and pokes fun at his audience and the norms of the time. I totally stumbled across him, and his wit, choice of words, and blatant disregard for what their audience wants or expects in a story. So, let me know what you think, if you want more from this author, there is something charming about the writing – also bare in mind it has terminology that may offend, so my apologies but it’s nothing we can’t handle I think. Also, a big shout out to Andrew Beneze my latest Earl Gray Enforcer.

Thank you so much mate, you reached out to me just now on where to find the Patreon and boom, he’s now an Earl Gray Enforcer. Cheers mate and I look forward to your story. If you want to support the show, visit www.patreon/ and you’ll find me.
