    Ichabod Crane, a lanky, lean, superstitious school master, arrives to teach the children of Sleepy Hollow. As he vies for the attention of the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, his rival for her attention is the town rowdy, Brom Bones. Brom tries to scare Ichabod away with local superstitions and ghost tales. And soon enough the ill-fated schoolmaster encounters a terrifying legend come to life: the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow.

    What turns out to be one of the most interesting cases of the great detective's career begins when a country doctor visits Holmes and Watson in London. He brings with him the legend of the hound and news of the sudden death of Sir Charles Baskerville. Sir Charles' heir, Henry, is arriving from America and the doctor is afraid for the young man's life. Holmes despatches Dr Watson to accompany them back to the dark and somber estate in the Devon moor.

    Story

    This performance is simply outstanding. Cast's performance is great, the dramatized script hasn't changed the original story.

    Even on the technical side, the recording is very well done. No over-dubbing or poor recording volumes on the cast's microphones. A few sound effects are a touch too loud, but nothing is perfect, and literally being just a handful of six, it actually doesn't detract from the overall.

    The performance does tend to go a bit fast, but then the story is novella that is a fast read, so nothing unexpected there.

    Enjoyable, but the overall pacing of the performance was fast, not rushed, simply told too quickly.

    The oceans of the world are no longer safe. Ships are being attacked and sunk by what survivors describe as a giant sea monster. The United States Government sends the frigate Abraham Lincoln to investigate, carrying renowned scientist Pierre Aronnax in hopes of solving the mystery. They soon encounter the "sea monster", which is actually a submarine, far advanced than anything the world has ever seen - commanded by Captain Nemo.

    The classic vampire story by Bram Stoker revolves around a struggle between good and evil, tradition and modernity, and lust versus chastity. The author didn’t invent vampires, but his novel has so captured the public’s imagination that he is rightly considered their popularizer. Listen and you will meet not only the Count himself, but heroes Jonathan Harker and Abraham Van Helsing, plus an array of madmen, psychiatrists, and fair maidens who cross paths with the fanged menace.

    Great performance of a classic story, length is enough to give you pause, but trust me, you will be wishing for a longer car trip or quiet night to keep listening.
