In the Halloween episode of Far-Fetched Fables, I narrate “Olimpia’s Ghost” by award-winning author Sofia Samatar. This story appeared in the Year’s Best Weird Fiction, 2014. It takes us into the world of “The Sandman” by E. T. A. Hoffmann via a young woman who read his tale. Her journey is amusing, creepy, and strange.
