Jap Herron: A Novel Written from the Ouija Board By Emily Grant Hutchings
eBook (ePub): $3.50
Download immediately.
Jap Herron was a novel written, supposedly, by a deceased Mark Twain from beyond the grave, dictated via the medium of a Ouija board. The scribe was Emily Grant Hutchings, a woman who had... More > corresponded with Twain 15 years earlier. In their exchange of letters he had marked one of her letters with the words: “Idiot! Must preserve”. According to her, she and a woman named Lola Hays began receiving messages from Twain in 1915 when playing around with a Ouija board at a spiritualist meeting. The story itself, a long novelette, is scened in a Missouri town and tells how a lad born to poverty and shiftlessness, by the help of a fine-souled and high-minded man and woman, grew into a noble and useful manhood and helped to regenerate his town. There is evident a rather striking knowledge of the conditions of life and the peculiarities of character in a Missouri town, the dialect is true, and the picture has, in general, many features that will seem familiar to those who know their “Tom Sawyer” and “Huckleberry Finn.”< Less
