Ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and mad scientists. The most characteristic features of the gothic and horror genre are combined here, together with some mysterious and hard to crack, enigmatic tales. The listener will be Dracula's, or seek the elixir of life with an alchemy student; they will run in horror before the headless horseman or be poisoned by the beautiful daughter of the mad scientist Rappaccini. And if this is not enough, the Inquisition will step in, torturing the reader’s body and soul with inhuman, otherworldly violin chords. You have been warned!
