Happy Halloween, everyone! Elizabeth hopes you’ve enjoyed her recordings of classic vampire stories this past month – and is featuring one more free audio recording in celebration of the holiday today. Christina Rossetti’s poem Goblin Market is a creepy tale of supernatural temptation, desire, and sacrifice.
