GREAT MUST HAVE for Vincent Price fans....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a great radio series starring Vincent Price. The stories are nicely spooky with good production values, and it's told from Vincent Price's perspective as a person....so it's almost like you're Vincent's friend and he's telling you a story. Soooo much fun, and he is so likable.

Told by the Master Himself

Wonderful program of classic horror related by the Master of the Macabre, Vincent Price. Related and enacted by a marvelous cast with wonderful production values. It’s an entertaining old fashioned delight.

Excellent Audiobook by Vincent Price

Absolutely loved this audiobook. There are many tales from "The Price of Fear" collection but this collection of 4 titles is even more special as Vincent Price stars in it all the way through, where as other titles he just announces the titles or briefly narrate them. Therefore this is a 'Must Have' for all Price of Fear fans. Great quality too as always by the BBC !

The Price is Right

Good old Vincent Price at his charming creepy best. Great little tales, wish there were more. I have a copy of Vincents fabulous cook book that he talks about. I just hope he does not include the recipe mentioned in one of these tales.
