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.
