Publisher's Summary

Classic stories from the original masters of horror, including Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Charles Dickens. Read by horror icon Doug Bradley with music and sound design by Alistair Lock.
This volume features William F. Harvey's original undead hand story "The Beast with Five Fingers" that sparked many movies, including Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead". Poe's classic "The Tell Tale Heart" is joined by Lovecraft's creepy tale of alienation "The Outsider", and a chilling Dickens ghost story "The Signalman". Harvey's other selected story, "August Heat", asks a chilling question about a man's fate, and Saki offers something different with a tale of dead hunters returned from their marshy graves in "The Open Window".

Pinhead reading classic horror

The narration is top notch. The stories were not very frightening, even for classic "horror" tales.
I'll be checking out the rest of them though.
I'd listen to Doug Bradley read the nutrition information off cereal boxes. He's amazing.

A Great Collection of Classic Spooky Short Stories

Amazing stories from well-known authors are combined into this Halloween treat for the ears. The narrator was perfectly chosen to create an eerie nature. This effect is further enhanced by subtle sound effects that match the events of the story. This audio book is was worth every penny, and will made any October feel more festive.

Good selection and extremely well read

Very much enjoyed this selection of audio books. I find these early horror stories interesting and am a fan of the H P Lovecraft inspired works. Downside is it is a bit short however I wouldn't say the price is too high. I have listened to collection 7 of this series and shall go through them all of they are so good.
