2023 Production for Voices Of Today. Mutliple-narrator book of classic short stories in the public domain. UK and US accent narration.

First published over a century ago in 1920, this collection of sixteen stories contains a mixture of tales about ghosts and contacts from spirits, some by celebrated authors, together with essays on psychical research.

As Joseph French notes in the preface, even for the skeptic, tales of ghostly activity retain a distinct fascination. The widespread interest in psychic phenomena in the early twentieth century proved to be a significant stimulus to literary production.
