Welcome to Doug Bradley's Spinechillers, Volume Six, part of the world's largest collection of high-quality, classic horror audiobooks. Are you ready for our latest installment of enthralling horror masterpieces? Good, then we'll begin with Doug's well researched and passionate introduction to the authors and stories in this volume. This is closely followed by his literary majesty, Edgar Allan Poe, with the well-known and classic tale "The Pit and the Pendulum", a visceral account of a man's torment in the prisons of Toledo, during the Spanish Inquisition. Waking in a world of sensory deprivation and disorientation, Poe takes us through every spinechilling detail of terror as the prisoner seeks to evade his captors inventive attempts to end his life.
Catch your breath before an English storytelling legend, Rudyard Kipling's "The Mark of the Beast", which will take you along a mist-bound trail for a soldier's tale of the British Empire stationed in colonial India - and werewolves.
Then, we are proud to unveil our first guest reader, none other than the original - and in our terrified imaginations, the only - Mr Freddy Kreuger himself, Robert Englund. His first Spinechiller reading mesmerizes as he brings us "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge", Ambrose Bierce's famous American Civil War tale. He paints a tantalizingly clear picture of a man's execution and his fantastical escape.
Next up is H. P. Lovecraft's "The Rats in the Walls", a wonderfully chilling story of a descendent's gruesome discovery of the true evil of his family's ancestry.
Volume Six comes to a close with a poem by John Milton Hayes, inspired by the work of Kipling. "The Green Eye of the Little Yellow God" is well known for its opening and gives an overall feel of ironic justice. So stoke those logs, dim the lights, sit back, and relax as the masters of classic horror fill your imagination with tales conjured from beyond our mortal coil.
