    "WARNING: Truncated story!"
    Any additional comments?

    What a screwed up audiobook. One of the stories, The Lost Special, is truncated, ending before the mystery is solved. I checked the original text to make sure i was not remembering it wrong. This is not a recording glitch as the background music swells up as the reading comes to its aborted close. What the heck happened?

    The narration is odd. One of the narrators, David Thorn, is quite good. The other is absolutely rotten.

    Still, given the low price, if you skip over the stories narrated by ms Frohman the recording is still worth it. Just download the original text from Gutenburg to find the missing bits.
