Spooky Listens for October

One of my favorite things about October is busting out just the right spooky audiobook to get me in the Halloween spirit. There’s just something about taking an already terrifying book, then adding the right narrator and sound effects to make it an even more hair-raising experience.

Be warned – the titles below are not for the faint heart so listen if you dare!


Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe, narrated by Richard Ferrone
The Shining by Stephen King, narrated by Campbell Scott
World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks, narrated by Max Brooks and a full cast
The Monstrumologist by Richard Yancey, narrated by Steven Boyer
