Straub who wrote GHOST STORY among other scary tales gives us one of the most unsettling story collections to hear. "Bunny in Good Bread" takes us into the mind of a small boy to show us how a serial killer is created. "Hunger" is a tale told to us by the ghost of a murderer where we are shown that life on earth is beautiful but which is only really appreciated by the dead. "Mr. Clubb and Mr. Cuff" is a black comedy of revenge. Mrs. Asch is the fearless guide who takes us into an unknown country in the feature story, "Ashputtle."

Ron McClarty is a familiar face from films and Broadway. He takes us through these Straub tales in just the correct voice form.
