Short Ghost and Horror Collection 005

Official 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 smell of human flesh, and the occasional touch of wonder.

My Review

This i sthe 5th collection of creepiness from Librivox. It's the usual mix of stories and you really don't have an idea of what you going to get from one story to the next.

Indeed there are some names in this collection of authors, Saki, Arthur Machen, Poe and even Lovecraft, so you can relay on getting some good listening. In that vein, I can tell you that I rated two as poor, one as good and the rest as OK.

the Bowmen by Machen was the Good one, and I suggest you save that until last ( you do save the best for last right? ). The story by Saki I didn't like, but as of yet, I don't think I've read anything of his that is to my taste.

In summary, it's an ok collection worth downloading with a gem or two in there.
