Like an high school literature class with a great
Yes. The is a varied collection of short stories and short novels. I've read many, but most are one that I probably ever got around to reading myself. And there were a few new authors to me.
The Purple Dress by O. Henry. (I would like to hear Harrison perform more O. Henry).
Bernice Bobs Her Hair by Fitzgerald and The Most Dangerous Game by Richard Connell.
Sherlock Holmes from the Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. There are many interesting characters, but Holmes may the most interesting character in literature. If not him, then Henry Adams from from Twain's Million Dollar Bank Note or the unnamed man from Jack London's To Build a Fire.
I look forward to listening to Classic Tales Podcasts 1 and 3.

A good selections of stories that made me feel nostalgic for elementary and high school English classes.
At unpredictable intervals, sometimes between stories and at other times in the middle of a story, the narrator would start doing a preamble about the story, but it would not be complete and would suddenly cut to the story again. Then during the final story, the story restarted part way through and then would cut back and forth among preamble, story, and earlier part in the story! It was rather confusing; it needs to be edited.
