Publisher's Summary

Classic stories from the original masters of horror, including Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and Charles Dickens. Read by horror icon Doug Bradley with music and sound design by Alistair Lock.

This volume features William F. Harvey's original undead hand story "The Beast with Five Fingers" that sparked many movies, including Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead". Poe's classic "The Tell Tale Heart" is joined by Lovecraft's creepy tale of alienation "The Outsider", and a chilling Dickens ghost story "The Signalman". Harvey's other selected story, "August Heat", asks a chilling question about a man's fate, and Saki offers something different with a tale of dead hunters returned from their marshy graves in "The Open Window".

Perfectly Chilling

Doug Bradley has the perfect voice to skillfully bring this collection of short stories by various authors, chillingly to life. Occasional, minimal sound design adds atmosphere, and sets the stage for each of the sinister tales. His delivery sounds not so much like he’s reading to you than that he’s telling you a personal story that he knows intimately.

Pinhead reading classic horror

The narration is top notch. The stories were not very frightening, even for classic "horror" tales.
I'll be checking out the rest of them though.
I'd listen to Doug Bradley read the nutrition information off cereal boxes. He's amazing.

A Great Collection of Classic Spooky Short Stories

Amazing stories from well-known authors are combined into this Halloween treat for the ears. The narrator was perfectly chosen to create an eerie nature. This effect is further enhanced by subtle sound effects that match the events of the story. This audio book is was worth every penny, and will made any October feel more festive.

Nice production-boring stories

The reader was phenomenal, the sound and music splendid. Couple of technical errors I heard was the reverb shifting in room size. The stories though I thought quite boring, especially the long last one which could have been told in 15 mins. I did like The Outsider though, as its a favorite HP Lovecraft tale of mine.

Gothic Storytime!

Doug Bradley reading gothic stories rocks this insomniac to sleep like a baby. I didn't see that one coming, but I'll take it as a win. You keep producing these, and I'll keep buying. Thank you!

Classic Horror

I thoroughly enjoyed the stories. Wish there were more of them. It's wonderful to hear stories that don't need gore to give you a chill down your spine.
