Mournful violin music opens this selection of lesser-known ghost stories. In Dickens's "Signal Man," narrator Stephen Critchelow presents a truly terrified railroad worker. As his story unfolds, his co-workers' skepticism soon turns to incredulity. The final twist is Critchelow at his best. M.R. James's "Whistle And I'll Come" gives Critchelow an opportunity to present a distinctly otherworldly description of a blind ghost--"an intensely horrible face of crumpled linen that groped and waved until it hit home." Listeners, settle down and get ready to be moved to wakefulness and creepy pleasure. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2015]
