The Black Mass — “The Moonlit Road” by Ambrose Bierce

Today at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time (19:00 and 03:00 UK time), please join us for the fifth in our con­tin­u­ing series of chill­ing land­mark radio dra­mas by some of literature’s most famous authors.

The Black Mass was pro­duced by Erik Bauers­feld and John Whit­ing at KPFA in Berke­ley, Cal­i­for­nia between 1963 and 1970, and is pre­sent­ed by kind per­mis­sion of Erik Bauers­feld and Bay Area Radio Dra­ma.

Our tale today is The Moon­lit Road, by Ambrose Bierce. It begins with a young stu­dent at Yale, who receives a telegram urgent­ly requir­ing him to come home where, he dis­cov­ers, his moth­er has been bru­tal­ly mur­dered under strange cir­cum­stances…

In con­junc­tion with the broad­cast, for lis­ten­ers who are res­i­dent of Sec­ond Life, there will be an in-world lis­ten­ing par­ty for the 7pm Pacif­ic per­for­mance, at the Buck­et of Blood Pub­lic House in New Bab­bage:
