Editorial reviews

English author William Hope Hodgson first published his spooky supernatural Carnacki the Ghost Finder serial detective stories in 1910. One of these tales, Carnacki the Ghost Finder: Gateway of the Monster, narrated with creepy macabre delight by Britain's David Ian Davies, eerily tells of Carnacki being confronted with an angry and powerful spirit within the haunted halls of an old mansion that was also the site of three brutal murders. It ends up being one long night for the both of them. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will certainly appreciate.

Publisher's summary

One Voice Recordings presents its premiere recording of William Hope Hogdson's ghost story "Carnacki the Ghost Finder: Gateway of the Monster". Carnacki's profession and delight is the eerie art and science of tracking down and dealing with the supernatural, and then relating his latest experience to an attentive group of friends...gathered together for just this purpose.

Still disturbing

I read the whole story collection as a teenager I found them in many ways the most horrific horror stories I ever read. The stories stick in the mind.

Now, after a decade or two of watching paranormal investigations ( some of which are clearly simply fictional too) I find parallels between the Ghost Finder’s attempts to investigate paranormal phenomena and the modern day Ghost Hunters - an aspect that enhanced my enjoyment! The narration is OK but the accents get annoying.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
