The Classic Ghost Stories Podcast

The Classic Ghost Stories Podcast is a long running audiobook style podcast running on all podcast providers and now on YouTube.  You can listen as Tony Walker, the host, reads out a classic ghost story, horror story or weird tale at least each week. Sometimes he presents his own work. This podcast has become a curated library of  the masters of the genre such as M. R. James, Algernon Blackwood, Bram Stoker, Shirley Jackson and many others.

If you like vintage ghost stories, and some modern horror stories written by the best, please keep on reading.

Algernon Blackwood

“The Wise are silent, the Foolish speak, and children are thus led astray.” 

— Algernon Blackwood

A Visit

by Shirley Jackson

Another haunted house story to continue our series. This time it is all strange and unnerving: odd women who live in the tower, visitors who turn out not to be real. Shirley Jackson writes another magnificent supernatural story.

My Niece Alison

by Tony Walker

One of my own.  This story comes from my Horror Stories for Halloween collection. It takes place in a remote Welsh farmhouse on a windy, wet night. Just the sort of place you might expect to encounter an evil spirit.

The Night Wire

by H F Arnold

Well after midnight in a newsroom high above the city, a strange story comes tip-tapping in down the night wire. John Morgan, the night wire expert, turns the morse code into words, and the words reveal a mystery.

The Turn of the Screw

by Henry James

The Turn of the Screw is the book behind the Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor. Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw is said to be the best ghost story ever written. We have haunted house in Victorian England, weird children, an innocent young woman.

~Don’t Look Now~

by Daphne du Maurier

Don’t Look Now

Don’t Look Now is a short story by Daphne Du Maurier that was made into the 1973 classic horror movie by Nicolas Roeg. This is a full length audiobook version of the classic tale of mysterious Venice.
