    "Good selection"

    Good stories with some excellent narration. Great for shorter listens.

    "Good stories, let down by random chapter setup :("

    Interesting and thoughtful introduction plus a short biography of the authors before each story. Good stories a number I had never heard before (and I've heard a lot. (mostly - I skipped the 2 serial killer ones, a bit too 'dark' for me) and really great performances.

    Unfortunately this collection is let down by poor chapter organisation. Annoyingly many of the stories start and stop mid-chapter so if you want to listen to a particular one again you have manually scroll through to find to next!

    Stories included are:
    'Smee' - Alfred M Burrage.
    'The Crown Derby Plate' - Marjorie Bowen
    'The Cafeteria' - Isaac B Singer
    Extract from 'The Wasp Factory' - Iain Banks (skipped by me).
    'Home Burial' - Robert Frost
    'They' Blue Balliett.
    'The Cask of Amontillado' - Edgar A Poe
    'The Monkey's Paw' - W. W. Jacobs
    'My Idea of Fun' - Will Self (skipped by me - contains strong language).
    'They' - Rudyard Kipling.
    'The Yellow Walpaper' - Charlotte P Gillman.

    Enjoy!
