Not his best stories and not the greatest reader
Occasional good story. Really bad reader(s).
Very stilted, annoying Boston or Bronx accent.
Yeah, don't let this guy read anymore. From the reader of "The Horla", anyway. It was so disturbing listening to his plodding, badly-accented speech that it really took any enjoyment away from the story.
