What to expect

Feel the breathtaking tingle of suspense. Share the captivating horror of the supernatural in these six complete stories presented by a masterful reader.

This audio recording includes:

“A Watcher by the Dead” by Ambrose Bierce: a corpse brings death, dereliction, and madness to those who would play with it.“The Body-Snatchers” by Robert Louis Stevenson: a never-ending demand for bodies for medical dissection delivers nightly horrors.“Adventure of the German Student” by Washington Irving: a German student, caught up in the tempestuous times of the French Revolution, is intoxicated by the beauty of a stranger and pledges himself to her forever.“Dick on the Devil” by J. Sheridan Le Fanu: Barwyke Hall, isolated and sinister, is haunted by both the living and the dead.“The Fall of the House of Usher” by Edgar Allan Poe: the melancholy House of Usher afflicts its owner with a morbid gloom. It is justifiably considered one of the best stories of this genre ever written.“The Open Window” by Saki: a nervous newcomer is overcome by a surprising visit.
