Publisher's Summary

Authors writing for the horror genre succeed in creating an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the listener. While the featured horror is often supernatural, it may spring from a very real origin.

They inspire modern retellings throughout print, on stage, and on film. This collection gathers the best of the supernatural and frightening stories spun by expert storytellers who can weave true thrillers haunted by spirits and visited by vampires; stories where even the buildings contribute to the black humor and apocalyptic natures of the plots.

Great collection of classic stories often ruined by poor narration

In many cases it's clear the narrators are reading without paying any attention as emphasis is consistently put on the wrong parts of a paragraph or something is spoken happily that should be intense or vice versa. Irregular, mid-sentence pauses, as if the narrator is trying to read the rest of the sentence and figure out how to say it, also often confuses the narration.

I rated the narrators with 2 stars instead of one because they do pronounce things clearly and have voices that are mostly nice to listen to.
