The 13 Days of Spinechillers - Day 8 - Poe's Birthday and William Wilson

Alexander Finbow - Tuesday, January 18, 2011
The snow lies thick around us at the Renegade Mountain Lair today as the blizzards, avalanches and mythical beasts do their best to prevent our stories getting out, and new creators getting in.  Fortunately two teams of tenacious story tellers have made it to us and are recovering in the hot tub, listening to today's classic horror audiobook.

Yes! It's Day 8 of The 13 Days of Spinechillers and Edgar Allan Poe has begged us to let you hear another of his masterpieces.

Who are we to refuse the request of such an eloquent and revered writer, especially as he celebrates his 202nd Birthday, so with much fanfare, cake and candles, we bring you Edgar's tale of haunting doppelgangers: William Wilson

Poe's tale is semi autobiographical and explores the theme of having a double. It is a cleverly constructed story that is distinctly different from his poetic stories, and a story that Poe was extremely proud of.

Doug once again proves that when it comes to reading classic horror, he's the man, and the story is completed with a wonderful score from Dan Woods. Personally, I hadn't heard of William Wilson until we researched the stories for this series, but it is definitely one which will stay with me forever. Listen for yourself at a bargain price of only .99 cents for each part of the story during our special event.

The audiobook is a high quality 320kbps MP3 file which includes the cover artwork by Dan Woods. We recorded at the Audio Workshop Studios in London. Joseph Degnan was the recording engineer. It will open just fine in itunes, windows media player or any other type of MP3 player you prefer to use.

Part 1 is lurking with intent here and uncover the concluding part 2 here.

We hope you enjoy this audiobook and find it a fitting way to celebrate the birthday of Edgar Allan Poe, truly one of the greatest writers to ever put pen to paper. Join us tomorrow for Day 9 of The 13 Days of Spinechillers when we'll usher out a new story by a master of classic horror.
