Editorial Reviews

The Monkey's Paw and Other Stories brings together a collection of spooky stories, over a century old, from such enduring writers like Robert Louis Stevenson, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Kate Chopin. The title story by W.W. Jacobs is about a cursed monkey’s paw from India that grants wishes that come with terrible twists. In this performance, a cast of actors perform various roles resulting in a cross between a radio play and an audiobook. The same treatment is applied to other stories, including Mary Shelley’s "Mortal Immortal", in which a man drinks a potion that grants him immortality.
The stories in this collection make for perfect listening for fans of horror writing interested in the roots of the genre.
