Here is "The Chromatic Ghosts of Thomas," first published in The Woman's Home Companion by Ellis Parker Butler in 1907. It combines both ghostly and comic elements ... I can't say more or it will spoil the story for you!

Butler was also the author of the short story "Pigs is Pigs," a classic of humorous fiction.

Aren't they great? Give it a listen or read; it's silly, ghostly and --- scientific (!?!).

You might want to read or suggest more Butler short humor other than the few that PG has; they are located at http://www.ellisparkerbutler.info
There you can find some of the Nash/Gelett-like poems he composed for signing Pigs is Pigs:

I cannot draw a perfect pig
But what is that to me?
Imperfect pigs do just as well
Since Pigs is Pigs, you see.

Pigs is Pigs in China
And Pigs is Pigs in Cork
But Pigs Ain't Pigs in frying pans
Because there Pigs is Pork.

Denny, you're right, it's a nice little story. You read it very clearly.

Bill,

I've downloaded your story, done a quick sound check ... sounds very good.

Thank you both,

Peter

Soundchest

Got it, thanks. I'll have a quick listen this evening.

EDIT: That sounds fine. You could slow down a little, perhaps ... especially with ghost stories, to allow the atmosphere to develop!

Thanks for your reading; it'll be going up for a formal check in the Listeners thread shortly.

Peter,

Thank you; I agree. Sorry, I'm new. I have two more stories behind my belt since this one (which was only my second) and feel I could do better. If it's not up in the listener's thread yet, I wish to re-record, going for a more atmospheric reading.

Let me know.

Soundchest,

Have another go if you'd like to; I'm still waiting for one more story before the collection goes to the Listeners.

Thank you for letting me re-read. The listening and editing was thoroughly done by me, so you can just put this new file in with the others for the formal check in the Listeners thread, without worry, if you don't have time for another listen.

Thanks again Peter,
:)

Got it; thanks, soundchest. I've got an unexpected guest this evening. I hope to listen and start uploading the stories into the file store Friday and Saturday.

Is there room for one more? I'd like to do 'The Withered Arm' by Thomas Hardy. It may come in at more than 60 minutes, though...
