Publisher's Summary

Are you ready for the horror?

Are you looking for some old school scary stories? Do the newer scary stories being published today just not do the trick for you? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then Short Horror Stories: Supernatural Stories That Are Scarier Than the Dead is the right audiobook for you.

In this audiobook, you will hear works of some of the greatest horror fiction writers that history has to offer, including Edgar Allan Poe’s "The Fall of the House of Usher" and "Ligeia," W.W. Jacob’s "The Monkey’s Paw," Ray Bradbury’s "The Lake," and finally, Washington Irving’s "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." These works may be old, but they have a staying power that transcends any of the literary trends of our age or any others.

Horror fiction is, and likely will always be, one of the most popular forms of fiction in the world. This genre has its roots in the early Greco-Roman people and has stood the test of time for thousands of years now, hardly ever wavering throughout all of history’s many vicissitudes.

Fear is the most powerful emotion that we face as humans. Of all of the things that we are afraid of, there is one thing that affects us most profoundly across all of these areas: the fear of the unknown. In listening to horror fiction, we are putting ourselves up against all of the things that we are unaware of. This may not only put us in a state of unease in the short term but also makes us analyze what is going on around us more closely, leading to long-term enlightenment.

The plots and characters throughout this collection of short stories vary widely, from haunted houses and cursed knickknacks to dead brides coming back to life and headless horsemen. These are some of the best horror authors that history has to offer, so be ready for anything when listening to their works.

Thumbs up!

I really enjoyed listening to this. Mildred T. Walker is a great narrator! In my opinion, short stories are fantastic, especially to listen to, because you get to experience many different stories and characters in a short period. I loved that there were so many different authors since their writing styles are different it was great to see how the plots unraveled. Though I did not love every single story, I wished that a lot of them could have gone on longer. Many twists I did not see coming! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for some short horror stories. I look forward to the next release!

So Scary!

This was extremely scary to me. I listened to it at night while trying to fall asleep. I found myself staying up later and later to listen longer. I have listened to this several times and I just love it.

Astonishingly Amazing

This book was absolutely amazing. some stories were a little boring and others were really good. I would recommend! especially since it was long and you get a bang for your buck. definitely not for the faint of hearts. There were times when the story got really gory and nasty. But still a good listen. if you're a horror fan like myself. you'll like this book. I love this book very much!!!

Beyond Expectations

I must say I was a little hesitant going into this book at first. I’d heard of Mildred T. Walker but had never had the pleasure of reading his work; also, Short Horror Stories such as these tend to be hit or miss, a mishmash of stories poorly executed. Not with Mr.Walker. These stories were smart, funny, wickedly terrifying, and, in some cases, downright garishly good. I support his work all the way and look forward to devouring more from Mildred T. Walker.

Very good book

Was not sure I'd like a bunch of short stories but I have to say I can't think of one I really did not like. If you are one the fence about the book go ahead and buy it.
