Publisher's Summary

Midnight. Some call it the witching hour. Others call it the devil’s hour. Here in the graveyard, midnight is a very special time. It is a time when ghostly spirits are at their strongest, when the veil between our world and theirs is at its thinnest. Legend has it, that while most of the world is asleep, the lack of prayers allow the spirits to communicate under the cover of darkness, among the headstones, their whispers rustling in the leaves of the old oak trees. But if you’re here in the graveyard, you can tell yourself it’s just the wind, that the moonlight is playing tricks on your eyes, that it’s only the swirling mist you see. But when you hear the graveyard gate clang shut, the dead have something to say. Here are their stories …

Very good selection

This book has a very good selection of different stories all read very well. A couple of the stories were just ok. But some I didn't want to end, and I am looking forward to reading more from those authors.

Chilling!

This book lives up to the hype. There are creepy chills, and moments of dread aplenty!

Delighted by the creativity!

The horror genre has slipped into gore and pseudo science it seems. Steven King was able to take us to a regular place and terrify the senses. He used what we are accustomed to believe to show monsters are indeed under the bed and thank you, you don’t even need to see to know that.
Not since Mr King, with his Alfred Hitchcock approach, have stories such as in this book offered refreshing, original, and the terminal to normality. Lately the horror genres has indeed been swinging back to the Masters of Horror and a new writer maturity evident. I am very excited with these authors. Good job!

Did not enjoy

I love short stories and I love horror. What could go wrong? A lot apparently. The stories were predictable or awkward. The narration was mediocre- the voices used for women and children almost made things comedic if they weren’t so annoying. I did not finish the book and wish I could get my credit back.

Not as scary as I'd have liked.

Just a little corney. I was looking for something to really give me chills.

Nice Collection

A very good collection of short stories. There weren’t really any duds among them but in my opinion, “Those Who Are Terrified”, “The Glimmer Girls”, and “Portrait” are standouts. I’m glad this was included with an Audible membership but I wouldn’t have been upset if I had spent a credit.

Decent horror story collection

There's not much to say, this is basically a typical short story collection: some are pretty good, some are less so, but there are enough of them that you'll likely find a number you enjoy. Unfortunately the narration's not so great, it doesn't add a lot of life to the stories, which adds up a bit over time if you're listening straight through. Overall, it's worth picking up if you want some decent horror stories, but it would perhaps work better to only listen to a few at a time.

Needs better narrating

I can’t even finish this. The narrator is so bland and gives no life to these stories. It’s sad because the stories themselves seem to have some promise but there is absolutely no way I can listen to this. I thought there were several narrators so I continued but at the 4th story or so it became clear that this dull voice was not going to change. So sad that in horror, of all genres, these stories are narrated with a lifelessness that renders them boring. I’ll have to read it for myself.

Some Worth It

I liked a few at the start, but by the end I zoned out. Not sure what I expected but creepy was replaced by gross on several. I may give it another try in a quiet zone.

Top notch horror

This a long but fantastic collection of horror short stories. The narration is very good, except for one story where his London accent goes very badly wrong. Otherwise, well told.

I so loved this collection of stories, brilliantly written, suspenseful, had me wondering when I usually suss the end, I'm gutted it's finished, I truly am, I have to say it's been at least 20 years since ive felt like that about a book, get it , if you're into small stories you'll love it.

It’s Ok but didn’t leave me wanting more

A collection of short ghost stories of varying degrees of enjoyment. Some good others not so good. Mediocre at best
