I write short stories and love reading. I can't stand poor grammar though. I like most types of books but I don't like erotica or romance.
Not bad. Not all that bad at all but twentienth century ghosts? Really? Apart from the first one none of them in my opinion were actually ghost stories at all. They were horror stories rather and some of them beggar belief but overall not too bad if you like mysterious things that take a bit of believeing sometimes.
"Good stories ruined by bad reading,."
The reader is not reading a book. He is trying to dramatize it and doing a bad job at it. Overacting and badly delivered voices destroyed the book for me. That is a shame since I really liked the stories.
