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".

Even though I am a woman I love the action packed kick butt stories, Jack Reacher, Nathan McBride, Lucas Davenport, John Rain, Harry Bosch, Agent Pendergast...need I say more. I do not seem to read many women authors, they seem to be too predictable lack a strong storyline.
What a great pleasure istening to the writing of the masters! It was a trip back in time and a history lesson at the same time! It made me truly appreciate the literary skills of these talented and unforgettable authors. This review holds for all of Doug Bradley's Spinechillers audio books of which I have purchased all volumes and listen to again and again.
Loved the history of each author and the story behind the story!
It would have to be Edgar Allan Poe for whom I have developed a new understanding.
