    1. An interesting and creepy little tale about an Egyptologist. A tad predictable, but still enjoyable. If you like dark stories it's worth a read.

    2. Listened to this on the Classic Tales Podcast today. It was an entertaining short story. It was predictable but that’s alright, especially when it’s an old story that may (or may not) pre-date tropes. It’s well written and a fun quick listen or read.

    7. This short story, written by Louisa May Alcott is about an Egyptologist and the love of his life and a mummy's curse. It's a short story so it doesn't get into the wonderful characterizations that Louisa May Alcott is so good at. The story is still good and you can see Louisa May Alcott's voice in it.
