Horror and suspense are not new topics in classic literature. While many are familiar with titles such as Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and the stories and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, there is a plethora of older and lesser known tales of terror. These short stories (and some poems) contain all of the elements that are still popular with modern horror and suspense: vampires, ghosts, killers, and the supernatural. While some of the titles give away what each piece of literature is about topically, some aren't as clear. I feel that not knowing what you are about to hear will be more of a surprise. This is not unlike watching a film without knowing the synopsis.

I enjoy horror of all varsities but I am partial to the classics. This compilation was perfect for me! From horror stories that I would never have found myself, to Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery," this book has a plethora of diverse and spooky tales to get lost in. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys classic, short form horror!
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
