In a powerful, ponderous, and seemingly exhausted baritone, audiobook legend Walter Covell performs Wilkie Collins’ The Dream Woman, a standout tale in Collins’ catalogue of the supernatural. Like Poe, Bradbury, and Stephen King, Collins spins tales of everyday life rocked disarmingly off balance. In The Dream Woman, Collins guides the listener to a strange room where a woman stands with a knife in her hand. Her potential victim, Francis Raven, becomes haunted by the experience and follows Percy Fairbank, a humorous nobleman who may provide an explanation, to England. The mystery is told in Percy’s and Francis’s alternating voices and is sure to be a welcome guest at any fireside story session.
