The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories from our many masters (and mistresses) of terror. GOTHIC TALES OF TERROR - VOLUME 5. This collection of short stories contains several gothic tales to bear macabre and chilling witness to writers as diverse as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Elizabeth Gaskell, Edgar Allan Poe, Wilkie Collins and Edith Nesbit. These tales are designed to unsettle you, just a little, as you sit back, and take in their words as they lead you on a walk to places you'd perhaps rather not visit on your own. Our stories are The Wedding Knell by Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Old Nurse's Story by Elizabeth Gaskell, The Premature Burial by Edgar Allan Poe, Dream Woman by Wilkie Collins and The Ebony Frame by Edith Nesbit. Many of these stories are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Word Of Mouth.

The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. They are read for you by Ian Holm, Ghizela Rowe, Bill Wallis and Richard Mitchley. Index Of Stories - The Wedding Knell by Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Old Nurse's Story by Elizabeth Gaskell, The Premature Burial by Edgar Allan Poe, Dream Woman by Wilkie Collins, The Ebony Frame by Edith Nesbit.
