A mixed bag, some very good, some just ok

1) The New Catacomb - by Arthur Conan Doyle: read by Simon Vance (excellent)
2) The Mask/Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe read by Patrick Girard Lawlor (classic)
3) The Monkey's Paw by W. W. Jacobs (real around the campfire story)
4) The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman read by Coleen Delaney (psychological horror)
5) Hop-frog by Edgar Allan Poe read by Patrick Girard Lawlor (nasty)
6) The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe read by Grover Gardner (superb)
7) The Willows by Algernon Blackwood (atmospheric, disturbing)
