Whether you're new to Le Fanu's classic tales or a veteran of his particular brand of imaginative horror, these narrators are sure to entertain and spook you with these stories of stalking monkey-demons, supernatural courtroom revenge, premature burial, lesbian vampires, and more. Although it's not clear which reader performs which story, it's worth noting that all six are talented actors, making this a particularly impressive collection. Perhaps the most memorable stories presented are "The Familiar" and "Carmilla," both of which are iconic in their own right but are freshly imbued by their narrators. No over-the-top shenanigans here--these performers understand what creepiness is and how to share it. N.J.B. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2016]
