Mister Ron's Basement #174

'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow' writen by Washington Irving in 1819, in it's complete and original form, is the LONGEST story ever attempted in Mister Ron's Basement as of this time.

What can I say? It's worth listening to the rich description of the land and the characters, and is actually much more frightening and fun than any of the movie or cartoon versions. Part of our week of Stories of the Fantastic.

Time: exactly one hour!

There are many great stories found in Mister Ron's Basement. Check out our catalog!
