In 1986, author William F. Buckley Jr. wrote a short book for Caedmon's Goblin Tales series. He also did an audio production of it which was release on LP and cassette by Caedmon Records. I have the extremely rare LP and I transferred it on to my computer and decided to share it with you. This is a truly scary and interesting story!
Ok, so this isn't exactly a scary story but it's still pretty cool. I transferred the old 33 1/3 record onto my computer with my USB turntable and decided to share it with you. You have probably read this book before.
I found this CD at the Dollar Store and just decided to try it out. It was OK. It was not great but I decided upload a ZIP File of it. The CD also included pumpkin carving templates and I included that in the ZIP Folder, too. The stories on the CD are common ones. You may have heard them before. Here are the tracks:
1. Introducing Uncle Rattler 2. Insomnia 3. Initiation 4. Oscar The Light Headed Pumpkin 5. Walk In The Graveyard 6. Trapped 7. Message From Beyond 8. The Red Truck 9. The Sausage Machine 10. Emily's Nightmare 11. 39 Steps 12. Service For The Dead 13. As The Hearse Goes By 14. Farewell
This is yet another Alvin Schwartz book this time on tape. It contains Word-For-Word narration of the book with music and sound effects. I only offer Side 1 of the tape here so far. Side 1 has turn-the-page signals at the end of each story. Side 2 is uninterruppted reading of each story. There's no credit anywhere I can find as to the narrator here, but it sounds a lot like George S. Irving on this one as well. Eventually I will put up Side 2, and perhaps scans of each page of the book. Enjoy!

Here's another entry in the list of books on audio by Alvin Schwartz called "Ghost!" Ghostly Tales From Folklore. This one is narrated by Doug Preis. So far all I have posted for you is Side 1 which has the turn the page signals. Enjoy!
Author S.E. Schlosser has built a website, American Folklore, that has some really good stories from the books she writes. She also reads her spooky stories as podcasts and you can download them on the site. But I have made a playlist using them so, listen!
