The aptly named Phoenix Audio has reached back to the late 1980s to resurrect a collection of horror/suspense short stories. Eight of the original 19 tales are included here, works by Ed Gorman, Joe R. Lansdale, Robert R. McCammon, Richard Laymon, and Trish Janeshutz. Like their readers (Joseph Campanella and others), the pieces themselves are fine, if sometimes a little dated. The packaging information, however, is a mess. The front graphic is taken directly from the original book cover and so clearly states that "19 original tales by the masters of terror" are included here; on the back cover, the eight included stories are listed with a seemingly serious error of attribution. In addition, there is no indication as to which stories are on which discs. In short, a slapdash and confusing product. Not recommended.
