All these British Library Tales of the Weird are worthy. “From the ringing of a disconnected bell to footsteps in the halls of an abandoned house and the whisper of an unexplained voice in the ear, uncanny sounds are often the heralds of danger and terror in Gothic and supernatural fiction. Yet, when examining the range of stories which best manipulate our aural sense it is clear that there is more room to explore how significant sound is to our experience of fear.” Yes, Wharton, Blackwood, Poe. . . but a good number of more obscure works and writers as well. #73083
