Gifted narrators Jonathan Keeble and Clare Anderson employ their prodigious talents to render these classic short stories from the 1800s with a sense of dread and gloom. With deliveries that are both smooth and believable, they use pauses and rhythm to create tension between the characters. They also produce fear and shock as they describe scenes of abject horror and suspense. They effectively call upon their acting abilities to create characters who are both convincing and otherworldly. Led by the talented Keeble and Anderson, these stories are shocking and suspenseful.
These five 19th-century ghost stories from both sides of the Atlantic provide some of the best chills in the genre. Ambrose Bierce is well-known, but "To Let" by B. M. Croker and "The Upper Berth" also provide moments to tingle the spine, as does "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances" by Le Fanu. This collection, which is further enhanced by suitably chilling music, was originally released under the title Classic Chilling Tales 3.
