A slim volume podcast collection of eleven classic short stories read by Mike Bennett. This podcast features six stories from Saki (H.H. Munro), including Gabriel-Ernest, The Open Window, and Sredni Vashtar. Also included are tales from H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Elizabeth Braddon, and a rarely-heard gem from Mark Twain, The Cannibalism in the Cars. These stories were originally recorded and presented on the Mike Bennett Sometimes podcast between 2008 and 2010.

Customer Reviews

A Must Listen

Mike Bennett has a knack for finding stories that really engage the listener. It doesn't hurt that his naration is second to none. These stories will make you want to listen to more Mike Bennett and also make you want to seek out more by the original authors.

Good story choices but ...

The reading style is tediously slow and boring it detracts from these great classic works. I find it hard to believe so many people rate them so high. At least they're free.

Even if you have heard them before

Even if you've heard these stories before, listen again. Mike's readings are amazing. His tone, inflection and the way he obviously loves what he's doing is infectious.
