This compilation of 15 supernatural and fantasy tales dealing with magic and superstition is well narrated and differentiated. Characters are read with appropriate voices, pitch, and tone that draw the reader into the tales, which are sometimes reminiscent of that old radio show "The Shadow Knows." The reedy voice of dying Front Page McGuffin, star reporter, tells the tale of his inability to die with thin, raspy words. The narrator's voice in "Caretaking" bubbles up from the wishing well she's fallen into in response to her mother's wish. This exceptionally well-done audio could have been edited for language and gore. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
