In this evening’s story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” we follow our protagonist, the homely Ichabod Crane, through the peaceful vales of Sleepy Hollow, a place swarming with the memories of ghosts, and one in particular –a headless horseman.
In our last encounter with our protagonist Ichabod Crane, we find him en route to visit the Van Tassels—and one in particular, their daughter Katrina—for an evening of celebration and perhaps—perhaps not—a little romance.
A prince’s three sisters have all married wizards who can transform into birds, while the prince marries a warrior princess. Will his sisters’ husbands be able to help him when he inadvertently releases his bride’s arch-enemy?
One of the things I most enjoy about presenting stories here is the great fun I find in discovering the personal lives of authors. Not only do our authors present us with brilliant literature, but they also give us glimpses into lives that are indeed majestic and fascinating. People like Jack London and Edith Wharton certainly come readily to mind, giants in their own time, and for me, H.G. Wells stands out among his peers for both the quantity of his work (over l00 books!) and for the human intricacies of his private life – as colorful as almost any of his books.
