The Grey Wolf is a terrific little horror story by George MacDonald. Go here to listen.
George MacDonald (10 December 1824 – 18 September 1905) was a Scottish author, poet and Christian minister. He was a pioneering figure in the field of fantasy literature and the mentor of fellow writer Lewis Carroll. His writings have been cited as a major literary influence by many notable authors, including W. H. Auden, C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Walter de la Mare, E. Nesbit, and Madeleine L’Engle. C. S. Lewis wrote that he regarded MacDonald as his “master”: “Picking up a copy of Phantastes one day at a train-station bookstall, I began to read. A few hours later”, said Lewis, “I knew that I had crossed a great frontier.” G. K. Chesterton cited The Princess and the Goblin as a book that had “made a difference to my whole existence”.
Horror and Science Fiction are sub-genres of fantasy literature. In “True Fairytales” I am telling not just the classics by the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Anderson, but I’m reading some of my own stories and the stories of other writers who take us into the different categories of fantasy fiction.
