An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge is one of the most anthologized short stories in the world. It was even adapted for television as episodes of The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

It's beautifully written, and I certainly hope you enjoy the way it's read.

    Eve, so happy when I got the notification that you had posted this story. I saw in your Twitter feed that you had done a performance of it which was apparently posted to a link location that wasn't accessable to me now. I wasn't disappointed. The narration was with a cadence that was clean and crisp, as befitting the dreadful ceremony that was taking place. And the story is frightening and heartening at the same time, with the suggestion that the human brain/spirit might re-shape time and space to offer temporary solace to the dying body in that instant of terror. Now, I will beg your pardon and answer the previous commenters question from my perspective. No, I don't believe there is anything that you can't do and do well when it comes to written or spoken word, prose or verse, original or interpretation of others. And that doesn't even address how damn smart I think you are IMHO. Yeah, I'm a fan, but I base this answer on first hand impartial data, without subliminal influence.;<})

    I admit I haven't listened to a lot of your narrating and non-erotic stuff but I loved this one! You're a very good narrator in addition to being a very good actress. Is there anything you can't do?

      Aw, thank you! It's all pretty much the same skill, whether narrating or improvising or performing lines. But I thank you for the compliment!
