This series is a consistently good one, and for each not-so-scary story (usually a Poe one - when are we going to admit that his stories scare no-one nowadays?) there is one really good one. In this volume, the standout is "A warning to the curious". I like to listen to these stories in bed at night with the lights out - they help me relax. But halfway through "A warning" I had to sit up and turn on all the lights, and I didn't sleep much that particular night. It's one of the most frightening experiences I've had, wanting to stop listening, but scared to stop. Exactly what you want in a good horror story.

Most of these stories were quite good and on the whole I hadn't heard of about half of them which I think is beneficial in a collection. The quality of the reading was not annoying. The only irritating part was the "creepy" music they continued to play either in the background or in between tracks, which was mildly distracting and did not add much to the atmosphere. That said the reading was professional and did not have an errors other than this.
This audio book is a continuation of the previous volume’s success.
Amazing stories from well-known authors are combined into this Halloween treat for the ears. The narrator was perfectly chosen to create an eerie nature. This effect is further enhanced by subtle sound effects and chilling music that match the events of the story. This audio book is was worth every penny, and will made any October feel more festive.
