Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones) reads chilling tales by the unsung master of the classic ghost story: E. F. Benson.
There's nothing sinister about a London bus. Nothing supernatural could occur on a busy train platform. There's nothing terrifying about a little caterpillar. And a telephone, what could be scary about that?
Don't be frightened of the dark corners of your room. Don't be alarmed by a sudden inexplicable chill. There's no need for a ticking clock, a limping footstep, or a knock at the door to start you trembling. There's nothing to be scared of. Nothing at all.

Very atmospheric stories, creepy, and read superbly by Mr Gatiss, who clearly relishes them. Despite listening to many audiobooks this is my first review, I am moved to do so simply because someone has given this a rating of one star, which is ridiculous. More please!
"Captures the age"
It's a nice change from Gothic castles and Victorian weirs but certainly just as creepy.
The airy atmosphere created by the stories & performance makes the eerie parts cut just that bit deeper.
"Excellent Ghost Stories!"
Mark Gatiss is an excellent narrator and does an tremendous job with these tales.
Listened to the entire series of stories on one sitting while working on a knitting project. Kept me thoroughly entertained and engaged.
Good creepy fun, especially for those who enjoy old-fashioned ghost stories.
