The days are getting colder, the nights are getting longer, and as Christmas approaches the time is high for some ghostly tales. As an exclusive gift for Audible members, settle down, snuggle up and listen to four chilling ghost stories, read by Simon Callow. Four great stories, one master storyteller - what could be simpler than that?

One of the hobbies of Charles Lindley Wood, 2nd Viscount Halifax, was the collection of gruesome tales of the supernatural. These stories were told to him by friends, acquaintances and sent to him by strangers, and he duly recorded them in a book over the course of his long life - he lived to be 94. This is the complete collection in one volume.

A fascinating collection, but my partner and I were both convinced the reading was computer generated, like a bad tube announcement. Very grating intonation. Sorry if you are a real person, but wouldn't buy again. Audible really need to step up their quality control.

Having read this authors work previously, I'd expected something similar in the vein of the traditional ghost story, however this is a much darker offering and rather disturbing but utterly impressive. Well written and constructed, and could continue on from where Ashforth left off. Highly recommend but PLEASE publish this in paperback istead of just electronically!!!!! Audiobooks are fun. E-books suck.
