Casting the Runes, and Other Classic Stories of the Supernatural Audiobook

Casting the Runes, and Other Classic Stories of the Supernatural

English author Montague Rhodes James (1862-1936) is considered by many aficionados the unquestioned master of the modern ghost story, and several of his tales have served as source material for multiple creepy film versions. He broke new ground by abandoning many of the conventions of gothic mysteries, and substituting contemporary settings, situations, and characters. Nevertheless, as a Cambridge medieval scholar, James was steeped in the esoteric lore of the Middle Ages, and he applied that scholarship brilliantly to his stories. The four stories in this compilation not by James are meant to serve as prime illustrations of the best work of a few of his contemporaries and immediate antecedents. Contents include:Casting the Runes - M. R. JamesWailing Well - M. R. JamesRats - M. R. JamesMezzotint - M. R. JamesCount Magnus - M. R. JamesNumber 13 - M. R. JamesOh, Whistle and I'll Come - M. R.

Dracula & Carmilla Audiobook

Dracula & Carmilla

Author: Bram Stoker, Sheridan Le Fanu Narrator: Alison Larkin, Clive Hayward Release Date: September 2018

"Meet the Vampires who started it all – the original Count Dracula, and his older female counterpart Carmilla – brought to compelling new life by Clive Hayward and Alison Larkin. Le Fanu’s tortured, powerful female vampire, Carmilla, has been terrifying generations with its themes of lesbian attraction, forbidden and dangerous desires, manipulation and misdirection. And Dracula, written 26 years later, locked in many of the vampire-lore conventions that modern fantasy writers still embrace. Hayward and Larkin offer delicious new readings of these blood-chilling tales. Followed by a conversation by Clive Hayward and Alison Larkin."

In a Glass Darkly Audiobook

In a Glass Darkly

Demons, vengeful spirits, insanity, premature burials and lesbian vampires, In a Glass Darkly contains five diabolical tales of horror and mystery that will get the heart racing. Each story, including the famous 'Green Tea' and 'Carmilla', is presented as a case from the posthumous papers of Dr Martin Hesselius, a metaphysical physician who has no doubt as to the existence of supernatural phenomena - unlike our anxious protagonists... These traditional, yet unfamiliar tales were revered upon release, with Bram Stoker writing his own vampire story some twenty years later, and Henry James once suggesting that this is 'the ideal reading... for the hours after midnight'.
