Short Ghost and Horror Collection 037

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

(4,342 Sterne; 19 Bewertungen)

A collection of twenty stories featuring ghoulies, ghosties, long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night. Expect shivers up your spine, the stench of human flesh, and the occasional touch of wonder. You may also feel more jumpy tonight than usual.

Note: “Wake Not the Dead” (the last story in this collection) is often attributed to Johann Ludwig Tieck; however, work by researchers such as Rob Brautigam and Heide Crawford rediscovered that the actual author was Ernst Benjamin Salomo Raupach. Attributed to Raupach at its first German publication in “Minerva: Taschenbuch fur das Jahr 1823”, its English translation in “Popular Tales and Romances of the Northern Nations” in the same year (the source used here) lacked any author attribution. The misattribution to Tieck may have been due to the fact that one of Tieck’s famous tales directly followed “Wake Not the Dead” in that anthology. The misattribution became widespread after anthologist Peter Haining credited the story to Tieck in his popular collection “Gothic Tales of Terror, Vol. 2” in 1973.
