Here and Hereafter


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.1 stars; 7 reviews)

This is a collection of stories by Barry Pain. While not all of these fall squarely into the genre of ghost and horror story, for which the author is so well-known until today, many of them will send chills down the spines of reader and listeners, and all of them are well-crafted and enjoyable. - Summary by Carolin (7 hr 15 min)

Reviews

Tedious short stories

(4 stars)

The readers did a fine job. The two with accents took a little getting used to but, I thoroughly enjoyed the extra flair. The stories themselves, however, I found a bit tedious. Predictable.
