Lovecraft, who explores dark deception in "The Terrible Old Man". An unearthed, long-forgotten artifact is protected by powers intent on punishing those who would remove it in M. R. James' "A Warning to the Curious". Ambrose Bierce presents a different take on the werewolf myth with "The Eyes of the Panther". The master himself, Edgar Allan Poe, takes us on a voyage of damnation with "MS Found in a Bottle". Arthur Conan Doyle weaves a tale of a haunted English doctor in "The Brown Hand". New guest reader Jeff "Reanimator" Combs kicks off the Herbert West six-part series with Part 1, "From the Dark". We finish up with the last poem Poe wrote, the beautiful and haunting "Annabel Lee".

"A warning to the curious"
This series is a consistently good one, and for each not-so-scary story (usually a Poe one - when are we going to admit that his stories scare no-one nowadays?) there is one really good one. In this volume, the standout is "A warning to the curious". I like to listen to these stories in bed at night with the lights out - they help me relax. But halfway through "A warning" I had to sit up and turn on all the lights, and I didn't sleep much that particular night. It's one of the most frightening experiences I've had, wanting to stop listening, but scared to stop. Exactly what you want in a good horror story.
A few good stories, non really scary i must say, but the narraters were brilliant...
