Summary

The Victorians were obsessed with Egyptology and mummies. It was during the second half of the 19th century that many of the most significant archeological finds were made in Egypt, and stories of the revenge of the mummies on anyone raiding their tombs, stealing their treasures or unwrapping their corpses abounded.
This collection brings together the best and scariest short stories of the period, featuring vengeance-seeking mummies, bandaged zombies, pharaonic ghosts and ancient curses.

Poor choice of narrator

The stories are probably quite interesting but I found the inflection in the narrators voice makes it impossible to listen too.

entertaining

For a while I thought the first or second story was about a woman until the bad guys tied Him up. The reader did not differentiate between female and male voi ces but did like her accent on words. interesting.
