Interesting horror fiction, very well dramatised
The Dreadtime Stories collections are the home of some brilliantly enjoyable horror fiction, imaginative and interesting and excellently written and performed. Some of it I saw coming, some of it genuinely surprised me, but I enjoyed all of it - "Wolf" was particularly clever in the way it leads you by the nose into your own conclusions, and then effortlessly trumps them. This is a must have for fans of horror stories or dramatized horror stories.
If you enjoy this, Volume 2 is just as good, and you might want to check out Tales from Beyond the Pale, also on audible.

THE LATE SHIFT
These stories are very professionally done. The music and sound effects are perfect. I might mention that there are a few pregnant pauses, which made me wonder if it had stopped. The list of stories is almost correct. Instead of A Heated Premonition, the story is Living Space by the same author, M.J. Elliot. I don't know about the story that was listed, but Living Space was a very good story. I liked all the stories. None of them are very scary. Most of them end in a twist. Since I knew they were going to end in a twist, I guessed most of them before they happened.
A FUNGUS AMONG US
My favorite was the first story The Late Shift, I would give it an A-. A Fungus Among Us, Wolf, and Living Space I would give B+'s. Reincarnate a B- and A Good Head On His Shoulders a C.
I feel that these stories are entertaining and the price is right.

Terrific! If you like horror, you want these!
These are simply great. Fangoria has given us lean and mean horror that gives you everything you want in intensity, curious twists, and spine-tingles. The performance is first rate and the stories range from classic feels with contemporary edges to unique and fresh ideas. I would eagerly buy ten more volumes at twice the price.
