Welcome to Volume 3 of what is on the way to becoming the world's largest collection of quality, classic short horror-story audiobooks.
This volume starts with the famous M. R. James story of occult revenge, "Casting the Runes", about a slighted occultist out for murderous revenge using his diabolical black arts to achieve it. It was adapted into the equally chilling movie Night of the Demon in 1957.
Next up is another famous classic, W. W. Jacobs' "The Monkeys Paw", a brilliantly written tale of greed and getting what you wish for.
The third story is "Hop-Frog" by Edgar Allan Poe - a classic yarn about the grisly revenge conjured up by a mistreated court jester.
Poe is followed by another master of storytelling, Robert Louis Stevenson, with his tale of grave robbers and medical students, "The Body Sntacher", inspired by real events.
Rounding off Volume 3 is one of the most well-known poems from Poe: "The Raven". It's beautifully written and concerns a raven's visit to a heartbroken lover as he appears to descend into madness. Doug Bradley's reading showcases Poe's work with care and panache.
Alistair Lock has again complemented each story with his music and sound design. We hope you enjoy listening to these classic stories.
I have to say this is my very favorite collection of classic horror. I have 2 main reasons for this 1 .. the narrator Doug Bradley is an actor who portrayed Pin-head in HellRaise. My favorite character that still scares me every time I see him. And 2 .... being a collection with many volumes , you avoid duplication of stories. The prologues to each collection also have very interesting facts and bits I enjoyed.
This audio book is a continuation of the previous volume’s success.
Amazing stories from well-known authors are combined into this Halloween treat for the ears. The narrator was perfectly chosen to create an eerie nature. This effect is further enhanced by subtle sound effects that match the events of the story. This audio book is was worth every penny, and will made any October feel more festive.
