I can’t even finish these stories as the narrator is driving me out of my head .... why why would you allow this man to narrate so many stories ... Awful Awful ....... he’s made some good interesting Stories sooooooo BORING !!!!!! I’ve heard some of these stories read by different narrators and the story’s are good but he has managed to ruin the stories Babble is right !!!!

HorrorBabble continues it's triumphal procession

Ian has produced another mammoth collection of tales written to inspire dread and wonder. Deftly read by Ian, the net is once again cast far to capture all sorts of delightful tales. Classics from 19th century writers like Hawthorne, Maupassant and Poe are included. Plenty of 20th century pulpy goodness from Lovecraft, Howard and others as well. Expanded Cthulhu mythos tales include Kuttner's "The Salem Horror" and Wandrei's "The Tree-Men of M'Bwa". Classics like Stoker's "Dracula's Guest", Blackwood's "The Willows" and Harvey's unsettling "August Heat" are here as well as a wonderful selection of works by lesser known practitioners of the weird. Ian includes some fine contributions of his own to this foray into the strange. H.G. Wells, Frank Belknap Long and PKD are not forgotten either. Another brilliant compilation by HorrorBabble following their previous two stellar volumes. Something for everyone here. The stories and reading are first rate. What will volume IV bring next? I will be listening in anticipation!

Another great collection!

I'm about half way through this collection and it's fantastic! Ian Gordon does a really good job narrating them - he's very clear with his pronunciations. The collection contains 40 "Weird Tales" from yesteryear. One thing I like about this collection vs. previous collections is that the stories are titled in Audible. But I found out this isn't the publisher's fault - it was not until recent that Audible allowed publishers to title the chapters, and as of yet older titles have not been updated (waiting on Audible for that, not the publisher). One of my favorite ways to enjoy these stories is with a paper copy of the story and I follow along as I sit and relax - and I can choose to just listen or read along.

Another wonderful 24 hours

The longest collections narrated by Horrorbabble are among my favorites. Mix a drink, light your pipe, sit by the campfire, and drift into the foggy chilling worlds depicted by authors with far more depth than most today....and all this with a fitting tone and rhythm. This is a wonderful collection. Highly recommended!
