My mistake: I didn't pay attention to how short this selection is. The stories are butchered, not only in length, but in substance. "Spine Chillers" even falls short of the minimal standards of a children's Hallowe'en party.
If you love James as much as I do, try the excellent collections,"Tales of the Supernatural" from audible. (Gareth David-Lloyd's reading of "Casting the Runes" in Vol. 1 is a treat, to name but one great performance).

These are jangly old radio performances "based on" M.R. James stories. Derek Jacobi just says a few words at the beginning. I bought this audiobook because I thought he was actually reading the stories and that would have been great. These are scripts with various actors taken loosely from the stories and they are not very good, I thought, and hard to follow. I think the description of this offering should be rewritten, as it is credited to Jacobi, but he has very little to do with it.

definately not one to listen to late at night. tried 3 by this author and this one is the best. only complaint, doesn't give titles of stories. fine if you're familar with his works, but not so good for a newbie
Thoroughly enjoyable listen. Could listen over and over again and it doesn't get old. Great.
