Publisher's Summary

Three classic tales from the golden age of the ghost story, read by Andrew Sachs, Laurel Lefkow and Steven Pacey.

1. Canon Alberic’s Scrapbook by M.R. James

2. The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

3. The Beast with Five Fingers by W.F. Harvey

A collector of antiquities acquires a priceless ancient book in Canon Alberic’s Scrapbook - only to find that something evil hides within its pages.

A young wife becomes obsessed with the wallpaper in the room of her holiday home in The Yellow Wallpaper. A man is tormented by the embalmed hand of his deceased uncle in The Beast with Five Fingers. For the protagonists of these three supernatural stories, ghostly terror lurks beneath the surface of ordinary life, and reality can all too easily fray at the seams....

Evocatively read by three of our finest actors, and with atmospheric music, these eerie, enthralling tales are perfect listening for dark winter nights.

Listen just to ‘the yellow wallpaper’

The first and final stories are not worth bothering with, but the second, entitled ‘the yellow wallpaper’ is well worth a listen. Since it’s free I would suggest just listening to this one.

Classic stories, superb narration

I already owned these stories but love Andrew Sachs narration so much I bought them again!

Stories included:

1) Canon Alberic's Scrap-Book - by M. R. James, read by Andrew Sachs (genuinely terrifying!)
2) The Yellow Wallpaper - by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, read by Laurel Lefkow (American author and narrator, gaslighting, disturbing story)
3) The Beast with Five Fingers - by read by Stephen Pacey (classic horror story)

Ghost Stories

A nice few ghost stories, not scary but slightly odd. Felt rather let down, narrative was alright but not one of the best story tellers, by Sir Derek Jacobi.
