Publisher's Summary

Horror and suspense are not new topics in classic literature. While many are familiar with titles such as Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and the stories and poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, there is a plethora of older and lesser known tales of terror. These short stories (and some poems) contain all of the elements that are still popular with modern horror and suspense: vampires, ghosts, killers, and the supernatural. While some of the titles give away what each piece of literature is about topically, some aren't as clear. I feel that not knowing what you are about to hear will be more of a surprise. This is not unlike watching a film without knowing the synopsis.

    "Just awesome"

    A brilliant collection of classic horror stories and poems. The majority of these I had never read, or even heard of. I just loved it. As a huge fan of classic horror this collection is a real treat.

    The narrator wasn't my favorite but he did a good job and gave a good performance.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
