Great stories if you are into the genre.
The readings, in particular, "The Tell-Tale Heart," could have been more forceful. If you really want to hear that Poe classic done right, go find Terrence Mann's performance of it on "Selected Shorts." Truly Fantastic. It's easy to find; the title of the episode it was on is "The Heart of the Matter." You won't be disappointed.
Of this collection, my favorite, too, was "The Canterville Ghost."

Imagine sitting around the campfire trading spooky stories with Ambrose Bierce, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Saki. you can't get much better than that. My favorite was The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde about a haunted house where the residence scared the ghost because the new owners were American and Americans had different attitudes about ghosts. So the ghost tried to enhance his haunting by shaking chains and using ketchup. Of course all the stories are great.

Found this okay, a couple of stories worth listening too but overall found it a bit boring and kept losing the plot a bit! Easy to be distracted and had to keep skipping back!
Some of the dark tales are better than others but there's not a dud amongst them. Could probably have done with a few more thrown in.
