Editor reviews

Mournful violin music opens this selection of lesser known ghost stories. In Dickens's "The Signal Man," Stephen Critchelow presents a truly terrified railroad worker. As his story unfolds, his co-workers' skepticism soon turns to incredulity. The final twist is Critchelow at his best. M.R. James in "Whistle And I'll Come" gives Critchelow an opportunity to present a distinctly otherworldly description of a blind ghost - "an intensely horrible face of crumpled linen that groped and waved until it hit home." Listeners, settle down and get ready to be moved to wakefulness and creepy pleasure.

Summary

Ghost stories continue to be a popular audiobook genre, and this group of four stories brings together some of the best. Reader Stephen Critchelow has spent a lifetime collecting and reading works like these and, with carefully chosen music, brings a strong sense of atmosphere to the recordings.
