Everything is going well for the White family, but they are human beings after all, and like everybody else, they want money. When a friend of theirs comes to visit, he tells the most extraordinary tale, and leaves them in possession of a mummified monkey’s paw. What follows is a nightmarish ride through hell, starting with a simple, albeit greedy, wish. "The Monkey’s Paw" is a typical "be careful what you wish for" story that has been used a lot in popular media after its publication – the X-Files, The Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt and many others. An immortal classic that not only fans of the supernatural will like.
William Wymark Jacobs (1863-1943) was an English writer of supernatural short stories and novels. He also wrote a lot about the humorous life around the London docks. Nowadays, he is best known for his supernatural horror short story "The Monkey’s Paw", which quickly became a classic in the genre. Some of his other works are "Sea Urchins", "Dialstone Lane", and "Captains All".
