From AudioFile:

HAUNTINGS was the original name of this collection recorded in the 1980s with Welsh-American actor Geraint Wyn Davies. He gives these tales of horror and suspense an astute performance, underscoring the timeless power of these nineteenth-century works. Davies tunes his emotional flourishes to the language of each story, such as the romantic declarations of Washington's Irving's "Adventure of the German Student." Both Stevenson's "Body-Snatchers" and Poe's "Fall of the House of Usher" ramble through social conventions of the times, in gothic detail. Davies allows listeners to fully appreciate the lushness of the language and the sharply defined images that have haunted generations. Discover and enjoy the performances and each terrifying detail of these classics. R.F.W. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
