I would happily do without Masque of the Red Death, so often found in collections. It is a classic and even has a moral...But doesn't need to be found so frequently. H.P. Lovecraft is just boring : full of thundering adjectives, but little substance. Yet, the collection is an otherwise fun variety of much less well known writers, varying abilites, and some interesting twists in the genre. Almost all the readings were good, a few excellent and one or two had poor recording instruments, I think . Bravo any way. I enjoyed it and others will, too.
