Behind the seemingly innocuous façade of St Mary's, a different kind of historical research is taking place. They don't do 'time-travel' - they 'investigate major historical events in contemporary time'. Maintaining the appearance of harmless eccentrics is not always within their power - especially given their propensity for causing loud explosions when things get too quiet. Meet the disaster-magnets of St Mary's Institute of Historical Research as they ricochet around History.

"Loved the story. The narration was ehh..."
A dimly lit coroner's inquest sets the scene for "The Damned Thing", which relates the strange and savage death of Hugh Morgan, a solitary man who found himself haunted - and eventually hunted - by an unseen creature stalking the untouched woods near a small, rural village.
FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of Amrose Bierce's short story. The horribly mutilated body of a man lies upon a table in the cabin. Eight serious men sit by the light of a flicker candle to investigate the cause of his death. Was it a mundane wild animal attack as they hope, or was something more sinister and supernatural involved?
This is a story from The Moonlit Road collection. 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.
