Short Ghost and Horror Story Collection 001

Offical Blurb

A collection of fifteen stories featuring ghoulies, ghosties, long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night. Expect shivers up your spine, the stink of human flesh, and the occasional touch of wonder.

My Review

I listened to this whole collection on a snowy February morning and was pleasantly surprised. A good collection of readers and only one or maybe two who could have done with better recording conditions. As I said all the readings were good, so if you tune out the noise that appears on a couple...

The stories vary from one or two minutes long up to about 30 minutes, so even if a particualr story is not to your taste you've not long to wait until the next one comes along.

Coming from differn't readers means that the volume level alters between each story so keep you fingers near the volume control and protect your precious ears!

Two in particular caought my fancy, "Strange Orchid" and "Casting Runes", both were amongst the longer of the stories and both from well know authors. All of the stories are of a public-domain-vintage so there is nothing "slasher" or particularly nasty here, they all deal with the super natural in one may or another.
