A Celebration of Stevenson and His Language

To mark Robert Louis Stevenson Day, the Association for Scottish Literary Studies presented three uncanny stories by Robert Louis Stevenson: ‘Thrawn Janet’; ‘The Tale of Tod Lapraik’; and ‘The Bottle Imp’. These eerie tales of witches, warlocks, and demonic pacts are outstanding examples of the storyteller’s art. Listen to the readings below.
