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.

 

Thrawn Janet read by Alan Bissett

The Tale of Tod Lepraik read by James Robertson

 

This wee book is available to download from the ASLS website where you can also listen to Louise Welsh read The Bottle Imp.
