Publisher's Summary

Hugh Walpole (1884-1941) was one of the most popular and prolific English authors of his time, best known for his historical fiction and novels for boys. But it was in the field of the macabre and supernatural that Walpole was at his best, and this collection of 16 tales contains many of his finest, including the classic werewolf story "Tarnhelm"; the oft-anthologized "The Little Ghost"; "The Snow", a chilling story of vengeance from beyond the grave; and perhaps the highlight of the collection, "The Silver Mask", which one critic has called "a masterpiece, a classic example of how a tale can be truly terrible and ghostly with no ghost and only the wispiest hint of the supernatural."

Critic Reviews

"There are sixteen stories in Walpole's collection, and they all reach a high degree of merit; all are marked by the distinguished literary quality one is sure to find in his work." (New York Times)

Bizarre and Enjoyable

Any additional comments?

This collection of stories is certainly different from any collection I've listened to before. Some of the stories have a spooky element to them, some seemed to be pure drama and others, well, I wouldn't know what to categorize some of these stories! I thoroughly enjoyed all of the stories, though I will say that some of them completely lacked an ending. Usually this bothers me a lot, but these stories were so odd that I kind of bought the non-endings as well! I would recommend this book to readers who like something older, something quirky or just like to try new and weird things!<br/><br/>I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Great collection of macabre stories

A classic collection of macabre stories fitting for any and all ages. I hadn't been familiar with this author before but thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to his works. The collection is rife with engaging timeless works. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
