Summary

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award

It’s midnight. Turn out the lights, cuddle with your true love, and shiver to fright-meisters Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, and H. P. Lovecraft. Quicken your pulse with the elegant terror of Henry James, Edith Wharton, and Guy de Maupassant. Chortle at the black glee of H. H. Munro and Ambrose Bierce.

These fourteen tales, plays, and poems, gleaned from cultures around the world, range from wickedly comic to deathly serious, from New England reserve to Gallic passion. This volume of late-night listening is a witch’s brew of readings and dramatizations seasoned tastefully, and—where appropriate—not so tastefully, with music and sound effects, under the direction of award-winning producer Yuri Rasovsky and his coven of twenty-odd—some very odd—performers.

Shut your eyes and give your mind a listen—if you dare.

Review Quotes

“A wonderful anthology…By embracing multiple genres and tones, performance styles, and national literatures, this audio Pandora’s box consistently stimulates, surprises, satisfies, and even stretches our sense of what an audiobook can be.”

AudioFile

“Every reader is excellent; and many are unique in both their technique and the quality of their voices. One in particular has a voice so dark and deep that it sounds like it originates from the grave itself. Good fun.”

Kliatt

“As entrancing as any Hollywood film and better than most…Tales for a Stormy Night is a masterpiece.”

Audiobook Café

“Acting skills and sound effects here can only be described as astonishing. Five stars.”
