Publisher's Summary

John Buchan (1875-1940) was a Scottish writer, barrister, and member of Parliament and later become Baron Tweedsmuir and governor-general of Canada. While he was most famous for adventure stories, such as "The Thirty-Nine Steps", he was also popular for his supernatural horror stories, of which "The Watcher by the Threshold" and "The Wind in the Portico" are prime examples.

This anthology brings together five very different examples of Buchan's best work.

  • "The Thirty-Nine Steps"
  • "The King of Ypres"
  • "The Wind in the Portico"
  • "The Watcher by the Threshold"
  • "The Kings of Orion"

    "Great tales spoiled by the wrong narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No


    What did you like best about this story?

    Buchan writes accessible and exciting stories


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

    Someone with a more appropriate voice, or at least tone. Cathy sounded like she was reading for a childrens group. The stories needed more gravity.
