Classic vampire short stories ( file )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 168 libraries worldwide
All things supernatural and vampiric appear in these 5 stories on the theme of blood and horror. Richard Pasco reads with spine-chilling brilliance. This chiling selection of 'vampyre' short stories makes no apology for its broad interpretation of the genre. The stories range from the traditional blooksuckers -- the undead who sustain a deadly existence by preying on the life-blood of the living -- like Bram Stoker's seminal Dracula's guest and E.F. Benson's Mrs. Amworth -- to others rich in vampire imagery, as in Poe's gothic tale, Ligeia, in which a dead woman takes possession of a living soul, the story of the dreadful appetites of Hoffman's Aurelia and Rudyard Kipling's The mark of the beast in which a deadly bite revenges a desecrated Indian God with fearful consequences. A ghoulish pot-pourri of vampirism and horror from classic story-tellers of the genre

Classic tales of humour ( file )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 136 libraries worldwide
A very amusing collection of stories from yesteryear given the comic touch of The madness of King George film star, sadly now deceased, Nigel Hawthorne with authors such as Mark Twain, O. Henry, Saki and Kipling. CSA have assembled a varied collection of short stories which we are confident will keep the listener constantly amused over its three hour length. So, from Kipling's inebriated duo struggling home to Hammersmith from the City of London docks, one of them pushing the other in a wheelbarrow, via the classic village cricket match played next to The Three Horseshoes pub from England, Their England to Saki's sardonic view of upper middle-class house parties. There's a classic case of mistaken identity in Dickens' The great Winglebury duel and Lewis Carroll's tale of a photographer who is obsessed about taking photographs of girls called Amelia! American authors have their say with the short story specialist O. Henry's likeable scoundrels and Mark Twain's compulsive gambler in Jeff Peters as a personal magnet and The celebrated jumping frog of Calaveras County
