Horror Story Collection 001

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.3 stars; 237 reviews)

An occasional collection of 10 horror stories by various readers. We aim to unsettle you a little, to cut through the pink cushion of illusion that shields you from the horrible realities of life. Here are the walking dead, the fetid pools of slime, the howls in the night that you thought you had confined to your more unpleasant dreams. (3 hr 51 min)

Some creepy

(5 stars)

I loved these! Have heard the mark of the beast in a different way. But it's still a good story and one of the best. Listen to them. They are good!

Mr. Glen was one of the best readers I've ever encountered, but don't think I didn't enjoy all of the others. All of them were simply superb. Even the reader who read the last H.P. Lovecraft one, whose voice grew on me as if it was a bunch of infectious vines. Simply fantastic.

My first and fast favourite.

(5 stars)

My first Librivox experience and I keep coming back to it still. Author and reader combinations are just perfect.

Not worth it

(1 stars)

Not a big compilation, and the audio quality is all over the place.

never use five words when you have a full dictionary to use up
