Publisher's Summary

The Ultimate Horror Collection is a fully-indexed collection of over 60 classic horror stories, read by four Audie-winning narrators. Included here are stories by H.P. Lovecraft; Edgar Allan Poe; M.R. James; Oscar Wilde; Joseph Le Fanu; Bram Stoker; Mary Shelley; Robert Louis Stevenson; and Henry James.

The Picture of Dorian Gray - Enthralled by his own exquisite portrait, Dorian Gray exchanges his soul for eternal youth and beauty. Influenced by his friend Lord Henry Wotton, he is drawn into a corrupt double life; indulging his desires in secret while remaining a gentleman in the eyes of polite society. Only his portrait bears the traces of his decadence. 

Carmilla - In an isolated castle deep in the Austrian forest, Laura leads a solitary life with only her ailing father for company. Until one moonlit night, a horse-drawn carriage crashes into view, carrying an unexpected guest—the beautiful Carmilla. 

Frankenstein - Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, Frankenstein assembles a human being from stolen body parts but; upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature's hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator, Frankenstein. 

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde - More than a hundred years after it was written, this tale of the mild-mannered Dr. Jekyll and the drug that unleashes his evil, inner persona—the loathsome, twisted Mr. Hyde—has lost none of its ability to shock. 

The Turn of the Screw - A very young woman's first job: governess for two weirdly beautiful, strangely distant, oddly silent children, Miles and Flora, at a forlorn estate...an estate haunted by a beckoning evil. 

Dracula - During a business visit to Count Dracula's castle in Transylvania, a young English solicitor finds himself at the center of a series of horrifying incidents.

Massive, Incredible, Maybe Even Definitive

Horror fans, this is one of the best I've seen on Audible, and I've got a huge library. I saw titles related to this one on Chirp, then checked Audible and got this and two of its sources, Complete Poe (the version with poems, letters, criticisms, etc.) and the Poe/James/Lovecraft collection, which contains a wider variety of classics by those three authors. If you like gothic classics, and the sample sounds good to you, let this ginormous collection of great occult tales turbo-charge your darkling library. Guaranteed to occupy the shadowy figures in your home's remotest Nocturama. What music the children of the night make!

Fantastic Collection of Classics

Loved this collection of well and leasser known horror titles. Some I knew well and some this was first time hearing them. All the narrators are excellent and the production values are brilliant, too. Well worth a credit!

Beautiful

Well presented, with full chapter headings and clear navigation. Great presentation, easy listening. Superb!! All compilations and compediums should be this way.

I cannot praise this purchase enough. All of the original base material for modern horror in English is here.

Professional voice actors not just ripped from LibriVox or other sources.
