    "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" is considered one of the greatest tales of horror to date. When Australian producer George Edwards added in his production and vocal skills, a true radio serial classic was born. "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" retold Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of a man divided. George Edwards lent not only his production skills to Jekyll and Hyde, but shared his amazing vocal talents as well. Edwards' skill to do multiple voices in a single episode definitely fit the needs of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, with it being a lower budget affair. The intense pacing of each episode as well as the high quality production values and the talented voice of the cast make...read more

    What's in a word? Apart from its value as a unit of information is there something more? Of course. Many words sound and express themselves, when rolled around the soul and mouth, as something both desirable, tangible and complete. We submit that 'Wanderlust' has just such a feeling.Most of us have an urge to journey, to take the body and mind on a journey that will sate our curiosity, build our experiences and memories and prepare ourselves for yet another.Whether as a child journeying wide-eyed through a field, a teenager exploring hitherto forbidden zones or as adults embarking on journeys that may change our lives and relationships with new cultures, foods and sounds - it seems as...read more

    Der Notar Gabriel Utterson spürt einer Geschichte nach, die ihm Grauen bereitet, jedoch ebenso sein Interesse weckt: das Auftauchen eines kleinwüchsigen Mannes mit erschreckend bösartigen Gesichtszügen, der ein ausgesprochen schlechtes Benehmen an den Tag legt und auch vor Gewalt nicht zurück schreckt, scheint mit der Person des respektablen Dr. Henry Jekyll verknüpft zu sein. Durch hinterlassene Aufzeichnungen bestätigt sich ein schauriger Verdacht: bei Mr. Hyde und Dr. Jekyll handelt es sich um ein und dieselbe Person. Robert Louis Stevenson (eigentlich Robert Levis Balfour Stevenson) wurde am 13.11.1850 in Edinburgh geboren. Der Vater war Leuchtturmbaumeister, das wollte auch der...read more

    «Fábulas» es la recopilación póstuma de cuatro relatos de Robert Louis Stevenson.

Era el lector el que debía estar alerta para encontrar en la mitología de la fábula la justicia.
