Eleven spine-chilling, super creepy short stories are read by the Master of Science Fiction and the Supernatural, Harlan Ellison. In his deep, hard voice, Ellison weaves tales dating from 1956 through 1995, including the title story and "Rat Hater" and "Go Toward the Light." Ellison’s incredible imagination and vocal manipulation of words and emotion create an entire world and atmosphere with the very beginning of each tale and enthusiastically and dynamically maintain them to the very end of each story. In "Midnight in the Sunken Cathedral," Ellison delves into the mysteries of death and where souls reside. As a diver dies a horrifying death, his soul is drawn into the terrifying vortex of the seas, entering another realm, where he meets his father and learns the truth about death. In "Rat Hater," Ellison portrays a vicious criminal who emotionally and physically tortures a petty criminal with rats. As the narrator foams at the mouth with pitilessness, the criminal is terrified to death. These tales are rife with dramatization and emotional suspense.
