"Pack's horror anthology provides a great deal of haunting entertainment, especially as delivered by the gifted narrator Jacob York.... York narrates with such compelling energy that listeners will follow him through all the evil and deadly encounters in the collection." ( AudioFile)

Wow so captivating!

I stumbled upon this audio reading by pure coincidence and am pleasantly surprised. I listened to the first story titled "Alive," and I was quickly drawn in. I'm tired of the boring, predictable short stories on YouTube, and this provides the horror-filled content I crave. I look forward to exploring the other stories! The voice actor is both pleasant and engaging to listen too. I hope he narrates more content in the future that I can enjoy!

Really Enjoyable Stories

A nice variety of tales. Jam packed with all kinds of stories to suit everyone's taste. This book was my return to Audible and Horror genre so trying to not pigeonhole myself into specific subgenres.

The narrator was good, overall a great read. Now in search of more short stories.

My first short stories collection

My first short stories collection and boy was it awesome. There were a couple of stories that I thought were a bit iffy but most of them were brilliantly freaky. M J Pack is a great storyteller. Do give this a read xx
At one point I was freaked out. Especially loved the stories about Gertrude, cockroaches, and Danny. I hope you all enjoy a good scare xx

Pretty darn good short stories

This is a really creative writer. Some of the stories end in an inconclusive manner, but that is part of their charm.
