This first-rate collection of all things dark and horrifying features 20 classic tales by the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, Henry James, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Bram Stoker, recommended by horror master Lovecraft (1890%E2%80%931937). Read by a group of gifted narrators including Bronson Pinchot, Davina Porter, Steven Crossley, Madeleine Lambert, and Mark Peckham, the stories come to life in a series of thrilling performances that will captivate listeners until the very end. Lambert and Crossley are true standouts, each producing narration well suited to dark and brooding tales. Pinchot kicks things off, reading Lovecraft on the skill of writing horror fiction, as well as Washington Irving's "The Tale of the German Student." Pinchot's dark, gritty tone makes for a chilling and memorable listen. A Pegasus paperback. (Nov.)
