I have been a fan of E.F. Benson's ghost stories for many years, and I am also a huge fan of Mark Gatiss, so to run across the combination was a true Christmas treat for me! Benson wrote some wonderful classic ghost stories and this is an excellent selection of some of his best, though of course I wish there were more here. He wrote a huge selection, and it would be lovely to have another volume read by this reader.
Gatiss is a superb reader. I wish we could have a collection of him reading M. R. James (the best ghost story writer to ever live, in my opinion) as I know Gatiss is a fan of James also and I feel sure he would read them splendidly. I also wish that Audible would provide us with Mr. Gatiss reading his own books. I know he has provided audio recordings of at least one of his works, how about getting them for us, Audible? Please?

Nine E.F. Benson stories read by Mr. Gatiss. I was pleasantly surprised by his performance - he has a great voice and did some enjoyable character acting. I thought his voice for Mrs. Amworth was more like a creepy old man and a bit out of place, but still entertaining. The stories in this audiobook are:
- In the Tube
- The Room in the Tower
- And No Bird Sings
- Negotium Perambulans
- The Man Who Went Too Far
- Mrs Amworth
- The Bus-Conductor
Highly recommended to classic horror fans!

Very atmospheric stories, creepy, and read superbly by Mr Gatiss, who clearly relishes them. Despite listening to many audiobooks this is my first review, I am moved to do so simply because someone has given this a rating of one star, which is ridiculous. More please!

lovingly read by the brilliant Mark Gatiss, this collection is the closest in quality to the unbeatable MR James of nearly all the available ghost stories in my opinion. a second or extended volume would be very welcome.
