If only it didn't have the Signalman

These are a great selection of stories, but I am rather sick of "The Signalman" by Charles Dickens, it's in far too many collections.

Skip This One!

I'm a fan of classic ghost stories, so I purchased this audiobook and looked forward to listening to it. I am not impressed with it - the narrators are...okay at best. Some stories and narration was good (like Hodgson's "From the Tideless Sea"), but mostly bad. Also, I'm not a fan of humorous ghost stories, so if you're like me and aren't a fan, watch out as there's a few in this collection. Skip this one.
