Publisher's Summary

Doug Bradley's Spine Chillers, Volume 2, presents four classic stories from the masters of horror literature.

It kicks off with Charles Dickens' friend and collaborator Wilkie Collins' eerie tale of a man's dream of his own murder that comes too true, 'The Dream Woman'. Second on the bill is the master of American literature Edgar Allan Poe's classic story of doomed love, 'The Oval Portrait'.

Making his first appearance in the Spine Chillers series is Arthur Conan Doyle. Widely known for creating Sherlock Holmes, Conan Doyle was also the author of a number of horror stories that introduced new ideas to the genre. Volume 2 includes his story 'The The Ring of Thoth', a tale of Egyptian mummies, immortality, and deadly rivalry spanning four millennia.

What better way to round off this voulme than with the classic H.P. Lovecraft short story 'The Tomb'. The story works well as a companion piece to Volume 1's 'The Outsider', and concerns a mans desperate quest to find a place in the dark tomb of his ancestors.

As with Volume 1, Alistair Lock's evocative sound design, score and additional sound effects, used sparingly, add an atmospheric texture to the stories.

This volume was recorded at the audioworkshop London and engineered by Joseph Degnan. Produced by Alexander Finbow.

A Great Collection of Classic Spooky Short Stories

This audio book is a continuation of the previous volume’s success.
Amazing stories from well-known authors are combined into this Halloween treat for the ears. The narrator was perfectly chosen to create an eerie nature. This effect is further enhanced by subtle sound effects that match the events of the story. This audio book is was worth every penny, and will made any October feel more festive.

Excellent!

I had to listen to The Dream Woman twice. The Tomb was great with a chilling ending and Lovecraft didn't even need to use any Cthulhu Mythos. This was a great collection. Must get more volumes.
