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.
