| Summary

Volume One introduces classic stories from the original masters of horror, including Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft and Charles Dickens. Read by horror icon Doug Bradley with music and sound design by Alistair Lock.

This volume features William F Harvey's original undead hand story 'The Beast with Five Fingers' that sparked many movies including Sam Raimi's 'The Evil Dead'.
Poe's classic 'The Tell Tale Heart' is joined by Lovecraft's creepy tale of alienation, 'The Outsider', and a chilling Dickens ghost story 'The Signalman'.

Harvey's other story, 'August Heat', asks a chilling question about a man's fate, and Saki offers something different with a tale of dead hunters returned from their marshy graves in 'The Open Window'.

This audio book collection presents the greatest works by a cross section of the most influential writers in the genre. Doug's dramatic readings are enhanced with sound design and music to really place the listener in the story.

Various authors

The expression "various authors," abbreviated with the acronym Vv.Aa., is rarely used in English except by non-native speakers, who look for an exact equivalent to similar terms (usually abbreviated Aa.Vv.) in Italian, Spanish, and some other languages. In English it is much more common to describe the authors of such a compilation collectively, for example by saying for what occasion the texts were written or by naming one writer, for example the first one in the alphabet, and then adding et al. The expansion of the acronym is the Latin expression auctores varii.

| Author


An author is the originator of any written work such as a book or play, and is thus also a writer. More broadly defined, an author is "the person who originated or gave existence to anything" and whose authorship determines responsibility for what was created.
