Publisher's Summary

Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones) reads chilling tales by the unsung master of the classic ghost story: E. F. Benson.
There's nothing sinister about a London bus. Nothing supernatural could occur on a busy train platform. There's nothing terrifying about a little caterpillar. And a telephone, what could be scary about that?
Don't be frightened of the dark corners of your room. Don't be alarmed by a sudden inexplicable chill. There's no need for a ticking clock, a limping footstep, or a knock at the door to start you trembling. There's nothing to be scared of. Nothing at all.

Gatiss and Benson, a superb combination

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?

Excellent Ghost Stories!

Have you listened to any of Mark Gatiss’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Mark Gatiss is an excellent narrator and does an tremendous job with these tales.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Listened to the entire series of stories on one sitting while working on a knitting project. Kept me thoroughly entertained and engaged.


Any additional comments?

Good creepy fun, especially for those who enjoy old-fashioned ghost stories.
