A short play from Jacobs about ghost stories and "playing the fool" in mixed company, with an alternate ending for the squeamish.

W.W. Jacobs’s The Monkey’s Paw and Other Tales of Mystery and the Macabre includes eighteen of the author’s effective stories that feature a palpable dose of suspense, owing largely to their expert pacing. Jacobs’s stories, however, are largely devoid of any nuance, literary flourishes or memorably eloquent passages; rather these are simply solid, well-constructed, straightforward, workmanlike tales. There are quite a few tales of murder in which the fearful murderer, looking to cover his tracks and escape, inadvertently (or subconsciously!) sets in motion the events which lead to his downfall. And there are a number of stories in which characters initiate a ghostly hoax in order to scare or embarrass a rival. Standouts are the classic “The Monkey’s Paw,” “The Well,” “Jerry Bundler”, “ Three at Table”, “ In the Library” and “The Toll-House.”… (mere)

The owner of a desiccated monkey's paw is granted three wishes, which can be a blessing or a curse. I did not care for this short story.

A cautionary tale about being careful about what we wish for. I've seen many adaptations of the story in pulp comics, movies, and television shows, but had never read the actual story they were all based on. Although a great short story, I think some of the adaptations did a better job of generating the horror of the final scenes. The short story pretty much leaves that to our own imagination. It's the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
