Here are eight stories from master American writers of the nineteenth century. They vary from sinister tales by Ambrose Bierce – why is that window boarded up? – and a reflective moment in the life of a woman without children, forced to look after children, to classic short stories by O. Henry and Stephen Crane. There is even an elegiac description of an eclipse by James Fenimore Cooper, author of The Last of the Mohicans. Read with sensitivity and skill by Garrick Hagon and Liza Ross.

Ambrose Bierce: A Horseman in the Sky

A Horseman in the Sky

The sleeping sentinel in the clump of laurel…

Is it then so terrible to kill an enemy…

At that moment an officer of the Federal force…

James Fenimore Cooper: Eclipse

Eclipse

And the first movement in the morning…

Our family assembled early.

A painful tragedy had been recently enacted…

When I left the courthouse…

My thoughts turned to the sea.

Thus far the sensation created by this majestic spectacle…

Kate Chopin: Regret

Regret by Kate CHOPIN

At night, when she ordered them one and all to bed…

Stephen Crane: The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky

The Bride Come to Yellow Sky

As a matter of truth…

The bride looked anxiously at him…

The California Express on the Southern Railway…

Save for the busy drummer and his companions…

No, he can't break down that door,' replied the barkeeper.

You see,' he whispered…

A man in a maroon-colored flannel shirt…

There was no offer of fight; no offer of fight.

Presently there came the spectacle of a man…

Potter and his bride walked sheepishly…

His enemy's face went livid.

O. Henry: The Cop and the Anthem

The Cop and the Anthem

Soapy turned off Broadway. It seemed that his route…

Disconsolate, Soapy ceased his unavailing racket.

O. Henry: The Princess and the Puma

The Princess and the Puma

One day Ripley Givens rode over to the Double Elm Ranch…

Josefa was standing in her tracks…

Yes, there was even admiration in her gaze now.

O. Henry: The Whirligig of Life

The Whirligig of Life

The Justice was just about to hand one of the documents…

The next day came the little red bull…
