Chilling Ghost Stories

It begins in the early 70’s, when cousins Barbara Freeman and Connie Regan decided to quit their jobs and make a living from telling stories after receiving much acclaim while telling stories to audiences while working at the same library.

Tales of the Frightened

The backstory for the subject of today’s review is quite fascinating. In 1956, Michael Avallone created a magazine called Tales of the Frightened. The plan was that it would act as a promotional tie-in to a radio series starring Boris Karloff. Sadly, the magazine was short-lived and the radio series fell through. Thankfully, Mr. Avallone …

While I have reviewed many audio dramas from AudioGo in the past, this is the first time I’ve ever reviewed a audiobook. Sure, I’ve reviewed audio drama/audiobook hybrids before, but this is new territory for me. And you know what? I liked it. I still prefer audio dramas, but this was a fun change of …
