POE'S CHILDREN The New Horror: An Anthology

by | Read by Mark Bramhall, Cassandra Campbell, Mark Deakins, Dominic Hoffman, Lincoln Hoppe, Ann Marie Lee, John Lee, Don Leslie, Rebecca Lowman, Donna Rawlins

Horror • 24.75 hrs. • Anthology • © 2008

Disdaining the stereotype of guts, gore, and little more by which many people identify horror, Peter Straub probes some of the best of today's work in the genre. This collection presents 23 stories of varying length, from novella-long to very short, written by both popular and little-known writers. Each performer imparts a sense of graveness to his or her work, as well as a clear respect for the written word and its author. Not a single story disappoints, either in content or delivery. It would be helpful for such a collection to include a printed table of contents that lists both the authors and performers of each work.
