Classic Victorian Hauntings

Good old Victorian yarns. Wordy yes, but this is what I like and these stories give you the creeps without violence and technology.

Each work is read by a different narrator, some better than others but all are capable of injecting spooky atmosphere into the works which are as different as the they are at reading.

These writers take you into the world as it was over a hundred years or more ago, when radios did not exist and we relied on our magnificent imagination to do all of the visual effects. If you are looking for quick fix horror these are not for you. These stories are a treasure and perfect for the long dark evenings with a drink of your choice and the phone switched off.
