Nine Creepy Victorian Short Stories – From Stoker to Doyle – Episode 33

It’s October again: that time of year when you reach for a chunky sweater, a spicy latte, and, of course, a spooky book to read. In this episode, I share nine of my favorite Victorian short stories by authors such as Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker, and H. G. Wells.  You probably don’t want to read these at night…

    i used to read them all the time, but something happened: i don't dare touch them any more for some reason… i get too scared… or i value peace a lot more, is probably it…

    Yeah, I stay clear of the horror genre for that reason. There's a certain amount of \”scary\” that is beyond enjoyable. These nine stories are much tamer. 🙂

    I might have to check these out actually……I will regret it though.

    I'm pretty squeamish – the only one on this list that I actually regretted was The Yellow Wallpaper.
