My latest recording just hit Audible today. The Novel of the White Powder by Arthur Machen is a classic short story in the horror genre.
A young woman, Helen Leicester, becomes concerned about her brother
Francis when he begins spending all of his time locked in his room
studying. At first Francis insists that he is fine, but eventually
admits that he is not feeling well and agrees to see the family
physician. The doctor prescribes a medication - a white powder which is
mixed with water - and Francis begins to feel better. However, this
"cure" doesn't last very long and Francis begins exhibiting peculiar and
disturbing behavior. The horror of the white powder has just begun.
Arthur Machen originally wrote this story as part of a series in a book
called The Three Imposters. The story stands on its own as one of Machen's classic tales of terror.

I'm also gifting the story to anyone willing to listen to it (free) in exchange for an honest review. You can check out my giveaway on Goodreads or Facebook (under FREE Audibooks group).
