9780140861181: The Penguin Book of Ghost Stories (Penguin Classics)

This is an audio collection of some of the best ghost stories ever written, which make perfect evening listening - for the brave...Here are apparitions, mysterious deaths and strange, inexplicable visions to chill the blood. The stories range from those by masters of the genre like Sheridan Le Fanu and Ambrose Bierce to classic writers such as Emile Zola and Rudyard Kipling. Some are frightening, some poignant, others leave a lingering taste of unease. Read by Nigel Davenport, Rula Lenska, Andrew Sachs and David Rintoul, the stories included are: "Angeline, or the Haunted House" by Emile Zola; "The Moonlit Road" by Ambrose Bierce; "My Adventure in Norfolk" by A. J. Alan; "The Return of Imray" by Rudyard Kipling; "Mrs Lunt" by Hugh Walpole; "The Open Window" by Saki, and "An Account of Some Strange Disturbances in Aungier Street" by Sheridan Le Fanu.

From AudioFile:

J.A. Cuddon has selected some of the best classic short stories of all time. Each story adds its own plot, pace or auditory spice to the mix. And Cuddon has seasoned his soup perfectly. Nigel Davenport, Rula Lenska, Andrew Sachs and David Rintoul bring out the best in each piece. Some use classic "dark and stormy night" voices. Others add chilling horror through their very lighthearted lack of concern. The evil spirits in these tales will send delicious chills up the spine.
