From award-winning author, Mike Bennett, comes Hall of Mirrors: Tales of Horror and the Grotesque. Here you will find stories of Hell and damnation, ghosts, madness, murder, vampires, bizarre hair restoration disasters, and ... pigeons, among other things. Hall of Mirrors is a collection of modern gothic tales with a nail of dark humour hammered through its heart; horrible, grotesque and hilarious. So roll up, ladies and gentlemen, and enter the Hall of Mirrors - if you dare. A modern master of horror, dark comedy, and creepy psychological thrillers. I won't compare him to anyone else because quite frankly, in my humble opinion, he's head and shoulders above them all. Daniel Shaurette. Out of the Coffin Podcast. Hall of Mirrors - The Collected Stories, is a combination of the two previously available Podiobooks podcasts, Hall of Mirrors Volumes One and Two.

Nicely original horror stories really well produced and read by the author. A great listen.
This was one of the first podcasts I ever subscribed to and it hooked me not only on podcasts but on Mike Bennett’s work. A must-listen for fans of the macabre.
This is BY FAR the very best podcast I've ever heard. Beautifully written, produced and read. Superb. Sublime. Thank you Mr. BEnnett.
