This collection of ten tales of horror involves monsters, mayhem, and murder: everything from war to everyday homicide, to otherworldly terrors from hell dimensions. The horror may be internal or external, in your heart or in your cellar. Here are people making bad choices, and people reacting to terrible situations. These are stories to make you think, tremble, and and shiver with fright - and lock your doors at night - even though it may not do any good...
The author had Stephen King as a writing teacher, and some of these stories have been previously published in notable horror venues.
What did you love best about Halls of Horror?
Intriguing stories with twists and turns. They are not blood-and-guts horror stories, but more psychological -- some disturbing, some eery, some paranormal. All kept my interest.
Have you listened to any of Fred Wolinsky’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
He is a very versatile and skillful narrator. His characters are all unique with a real personality. His narration is well paced and brings out the emotion of the story. Each story is presented with a different style.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Not needed, since they are 10 different stories. I did want to hear each story to the end before stopping.
Any additional comments?
These stories cover a wide range of styles and keep your interest. They are not the typical horror stories -- they make you think. They are reminiscent of the old "Twilight Zone" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" stories. The narrator is very skilled and versatile. He gives each story a unique "voice" and really brings the characters to life, each with their own personality.
