Classic stories from the original masters of horror, including Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Charles Dickens. Read by horror icon Doug Bradley with music and sound design by Alistair Lock.
This volume features William F. Harvey's original undead hand story "The Beast with Five Fingers" that sparked many movies, including Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead". Poe's classic "The Tell Tale Heart" is joined by Lovecraft's creepy tale of alienation "The Outsider", and a chilling Dickens ghost story "The Signalman". Harvey's other selected story, "August Heat", asks a chilling question about a man's fate, and Saki offers something different with a tale of dead hunters returned from their marshy graves in "The Open Window".

Amazing stories from well-known authors are combined into this Halloween treat for the ears. The narrator was perfectly chosen to create an eerie nature. This effect is further enhanced by subtle sound effects that match the events of the story. This audio book is was worth every penny, and will made any October feel more festive.
I thoroughly enjoyed the stories. Wish there were more of them. It's wonderful to hear stories that don't need gore to give you a chill down your spine.
The reader was phenomenal, the sound and music splendid. Couple of technical errors I heard was the reverb shifting in room size. The stories though I thought quite boring, especially the long last one which could have been told in 15 mins. I did like The Outsider though, as its a favorite HP Lovecraft tale of mine.
