No titles

There were no pauses between stories or author info in the audio, so some of the transitions were kind of jarring, running things together. I enjoyed most of the stories but have no idea who wrote what.

Creepy

Any additional comments?

This reads(listens) like a book of fireside scary stories.

The individual authors do a fantastic job of just being creepy and maintaining a natural narrative voice.

I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a random listen of short and very creepy stories.

Mama Gone

Good but not long enough stories to be worth the cost.
