A series of terrifying accounts of the macabre is brought to life through David Ledouxs splendid reading. Ledoux offers a straightforward approach, making Hills startling tales as believable as they are frightening. As narrator, Ledoux understands these stories--be it the dazzlingly imaginative Pop Art or the tense Best New Horror, in which the central character is a horror editor who finds himself entrapped in one of his stories. Hill is a master at creating a high-tension atmosphere that never ceases to pay off with a scare. This innate ability is perfectly realized by Ledoux, who knows precisely when to increase his tone and pitch, or let his voice accelerate to increase the stakes. Dark, bruiting, and realistic, Ledouxs performance is underplayed where it could go over the top. L.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
