Editorial Reviews

Through this eclectic mix of short stories from America's most renowned authors, listeners will run a gamut of genres, stretching from ethereal romance (Sarah Orne Jewett's "The Courting of Sister Wisby") to fast-paced adventure (Edgar Allan Poe's "The Gold Bug") to macabre horror (Ambrose Bierce's "The Damned Thing"). This audiobook anthology combines decades’ worth of classic performances in a multi-volume set. The ensemble cast of actors includes contemporary radio dramatists and pioneers of the audiobook format stretching back to the days of vinyl. These performances have withstood the test of time, providing fitting voices for America’s short story classics.
