Do what you love

First, before we get into the stories, Seth's voice made me pregnant. Okay okay, his voice doesn't have supernatural powers, but it's close. Beyond that he's not just a sexy voice with nothing to say, he performs his readings well and in a wildly entertaining fashion.

Which could have a lot to do with the fact that he wrote them and adores this genre. Seth's enthusiasm for the topic comes through loud and clear, you will be entertained, and a little creeped out, but in a good way.

Give it a listen! Just not while taking a midnight jog.

Worth it for the Performances Alone!

This audio book is a delightful compilation of ghost stories, some familiar, some completely new, and all wonderfully creepy in their own ways. While I did find that a couple of the stories had predictable story paths or endings (only one of which was because I had heard that particular tale before), I felt they were all worth listening to for the absurdly good performance Seth and his compatriots bring to the table. Seth does a wonderful job not just telling you a story, but dragging you kicking and screaming into the middle of it with well written dialogue and visuals, as well as atmosphere enhancing sound effects. I wasn't just listening to a ghost story, I was present within it, experiencing it just the same as the characters were. Even the stories where I was aware what was going to happen, or predicted as much, I still found myself shouting "get out of the house!!" or some other such pleading, as though the characters would hear me and heed my advice. I cannot recommend this Audiobook enough.

A great collection.

A fantastic collection of stories, old and new. There is enough here for fans of Seth and newcomers alike to enjoy, from original stories previously found and expanded upon from his October shows to retellings of classic urban legends. Highly recommended for a quick chill.

Spooky fun! Great production!

I'm not much of a horror fan but I enjoy Seth Andrews' annual Ghost Stories show on his podcast so I decided to invest an Audible credit on his recently-released collection of stores. There are fourteen stories in this collection, with some original stories and some spooky urban legends.

The production is excellent, very professional. Seth has an amazing voice and his narration is fantastic. In addition to Seth, there were nine other voice actors involved. The stories also featured realistic sound effects and chilling background music. He also credits a Georgia law enforcement officer for providing consultation for police procedures.

I listened to this on my recent road trip to Wisconsin and it kept me entertained and awake along the lonely deer carcass-lined roads. It was a lot of fun.

Fantastically spooky

Seth Andrews has one of the hands down best voices in podcasts. To hear him read his own stories on this audible book is a treat of the best kind and well worth triple the cost of the book. The background music and sounds are very well done and add to the suspense of each story. You will find yourself enthralled from beginning to end. I'm not sure which story is my favorite since I like them all.

I've heard many of Andrews' Ghost Stories podcasts over the years and was glad to get these stories in an audible book.

Though I probably should NOT have listened to them while in the dentist's chair,....

Fantastic scary stories

Seth Andrews does not disappoint. Old school listeners of his podcast will recognize some of the stories, but there are enough new twists to keep even the most ardent Thinking Atheist listener.

Listening at night is not recommended...

This audiobook is fully produced, with sound effects and music that can and will creep you out if you listen to it under the right settings.

That’s the mark of a great listen right there. Fully recommend checking this one out!

Genuinely scary and even traumatising in places

I’ve been looking forward to listening to this since hearing Seth’s annual Halloween Ghost Stories episodes on The Thinking Atheist podcast.
The stories themselves are very good but it’s the music and sound effects that really make the stories terrifying.
I dare you to plug in your headphones and listen to Arabella the Black (chapter 14) alone in a darkened room in the middle of the night. It’ll make your heart race and you ears ring!
I highly recommend this if you like horror or dramatised audiobooks.

Creepiness at its best

I've been listening to Seth Andrews for a number of years on his Thinking Atheist podcast and was manually curious to see what this title would turn out like..... I wasn't disappointed.
A mix of brand new fiction and reworking of older stories, combined with some background information and writers notes, it doesn't fail to entertain.
Well worth the listen.

Spooky and heartbreaking

Regular listeners of Seth Andrews' podcast will find old Halloween favourites here, some of them rewritten a little and rerecorded as well as some new stories and urban legends we haven't heard before. This collection is much more like an old fashioned radio horror show than what you might usually expect from an audio book as it is highly produced with a soundscape that creates atmosphere and enhances the tales.I can't recommend this book highly enough.

Goosebumps.

I listened to this collection of Ghost Stories with my family and we loved it. Highly recommend it for anyone. Ghost Stories is a very well put together and very well read collection of stories that take you on an emotional roller coaster ride through the supernatural. Seth's voice really carried the stories and takes you along with it.
