12 Responses to Ludlow Part 1 of 5 and Interview with David Mason

  1. Barbara Hegarty says:

    Held me spellbound. Can’t wait for the next reading. Having lived for almost 30 years in the Trinidad, Cokedale, Walsenburg and LaVeta communities and having learned much of the history of the area, this story brings me closer to home.

  2. Deb Stover says:

    Riveting story. I will be back for more. Bravo!

    ~Deb

    It’s like Pynchon’s “Against the Day”, but not so…refracted. Bravo!

    I too wish I could listen to Ludlow on my ipod. When the audiobook comes out, or if it’s out already, will it be available with David Mason reading? Christmas is coming….

  10. Sheri Bauers says:

    I was attached to my radio Saturday for the final installment… what an outstanding piece of literature, superbly read, and intensely felt.

  11. I am the co-founder of Light in the Dark Paranormal, an investigative group with an emphasis on local histories. It might be interesting to note here that my group and I investigated the Ludlow Massacre recently, and came back with some amazing photos, that we belive to reveal the “ghosts” of those brutally killed.
    We are presenting these and other evidence at a talk at the Pueblo Library (main branch) on October 29th, 2012, 7 to 8:30 pm. For more info, contact paulh@ourcoloradohomes.net
