SSBC Classic: Governess Wanted (1/2): Turn of the Screw by Henry James

"...I had the view of a castle of romance inhabited by a rosy sprite, such a place as would somehow, for diversion of the young idea, take all color out of storybooks and fairytales."

A young governess takes a job for two children at a remote English estate, with very little detail. The house is lovely, and the children are charming, but unexpected visitors start popping up. Are they ghosts? Are they demons? Is she insane? Join Aurelien and Catrina for a lively discussion (and potential rewrites) of Henry James' famous short story -- and someone keep an eye on the window, please. 


Theme: Magical Transition by Kevin McLeod Additional music and sound effects from zapsplat.com
