Great Tales, decent audio quality.

This was the 3rd collection of short stories I purchased through Audible and by far the best. The other two were very difficult to listen to due to poor audio quality and substandard readers. The sound quality and reader in this one are nothing to write home about but they don't spoil the fine stories.

Rather dull

This book contains 10 short stories; many based on sea voyages dealing with strange things; phantoms only half glimpsed; ghosts and other supernatural phenomena discussed by their effect on others. Much of it is in the form of diaries. I had hoped for more.
