Good Stories with Poor Narration

I'm going to be honest and say that the narrator was one of the worst I've heard. I was looking forward to hearing one of my favourite stories, The Captain of the Polestar, only to hear it butchered by Walter Covell. Overall, the stories are good - buyer beware in regards to the narrator!
