Publisher's Summary

Volume 12 begins with Doug Bradley's well-researched insight into the stories and their authors. This is followed by what H. P. Lovecraft considered to be one of his best stories, "The Music of Eric Zann". "The Tool" by W. F. Harvey is a horrifying tale narrated by an inmate of a mental institution. Next Edgar Allan Poe revisits his terrifying fear of being buried alive in "The Premature Burial". Then an eavesdropper overhears five creepy and scary ghost stories in Charles Dickens "To Be Read at Dusk". Ambrose Bierce’s haunting "The Moonlit Road" relates a murder tale from three perspectives, including the murdered wife's. Jeffery Combs reads Part 5 of "Herbert West Reanimator" and this volume is completed with Edgar Allan Poe's "Dreamland". The poem describes the strange sights the speaker sees along his journey in a different and disturbing world.

Another Excellent Collection of Classic Horror!

Spinechillers Volume 12 has done it again with another great collection of classic horror and ghost stories. All of the stories were a pleasure to listen to, with Doug Bradley doing a fantastic performance as always. I especially liked the readings of The Music of Erich Zann and The Tool. To Be Read at Dusk is not a story I enjoy, but hearing it read by Mr. Bradley made it a bit more tolerable. The Moonlit Road is one of those stories that I was on the fence about whether I liked it or not, but after having listened to it in this collection I'm leaning more towards liking it. Make sure to pick this and all of the other Spinechillers audiobooks up if you are a fan of classic horror!

I'm not sure what was different

I was a little bored with this volume. It put me to sleep more than once.

How is this Horror/Scary?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I bought this book as the reviews seemed really great. Though after listening to the first story, I was perplexed. In no way was this scary or chilling or what have you.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing in this series or by this author.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator was good. He had a good voice for this genre.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

The positive reviews.

Excellemt Stories of Chilling Horror

The stories are powerful haunting & will scare you witless & will leave you chilled. Do not listen just as you are drifting off to sleep, nightmares may
follow.

All these horror stories are excellent horrifying classics. Too many to give just one example of a moment.

As good as the stories are, Doug does not do it for me, too cold & blandly repetitive as if reading from a news paper. Needs a voice with much more depth, variants in tone etc & someone with a spooky take.
