Radio classics!

Starting with a chilling Poe classic, this collection of "The Weird Circle" contains 20 vintage radio shows. Spanning the war years of 1943 to 1945, these episodes hold up rather well. The production values are top notch, and the voice acting superb. The writing is based on classics from Poe, Melville, Dickens and others...obviously no complaints there. In fact, this version of Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Heart of Ethan Brand" has quickly become one of my favorite radio shows of all time. With a decent price point (which works out to $0.95 per tale) one cannot go wrong. Highly recommended to any fan of suspense and horror radio.
