"Listening to [this series] is an armchair adventurer's dream...let your imagination go." (Independent Publisher)
"Listen & Live Audio's new series will take your breath away and send your heart racing." (AudioFile)
Interesting and thoughtful introduction plus a short biography of the authors before each story. Good stories a number I had never heard before (and I've heard a lot. (mostly - I skipped the 2 serial killer ones, a bit too 'dark' for me) and really great performances.
Unfortunately this collection is let down by poor chapter organisation. Annoyingly many of the stories start and stop mid-chapter so if you want to listen to a particular one again you have manually scroll through to find to next!
Stories included are:
'Smee' - Alfred M Burrage.
'The Crown Derby Plate' - Marjorie Bowen
'The Cafeteria' - Isaac B Singer
Extract from 'The Wasp Factory' - Iain Banks (skipped by me).
'Home Burial' - Robert Frost
'They' Blue Balliett.
'The Cask of Amontillado' - Edgar A Poe
'The Monkey's Paw' - W. W. Jacobs
'My Idea of Fun' - Will Self (skipped by me - contains strong language).
'They' - Rudyard Kipling.
'The Yellow Walpaper' - Charlotte P Gillman.
Good stories with some excellent narration. Great for shorter listens.
