The Unparalleled Adventure of One Hans Pfaall
My rating: 4 out of 5 stars
An obviously fake news story written as a journal, but one that is entertaining even with the bad science. The titular character claims to have flown a balloon to the moon, but it crashes there leading to the question of how he got his account back to his native Rotterdam…but still really entertaining.
My rating: 1 out of 5 stars
Funny morality tale? Or something close? No idea.
My rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
A funeral party by a bunch of friends for a fellow who died of a plague gets visited by the Shadow of Death. Very short and sweet.
My rating: 2 out of 5 stars
A demon details how he challenged a man with various things to make him run and in the end it was complete silence that scared him. An interesting little tale, but nothing really special.
