Quotes & Awards

  • “Talk about a match made in heaven! It would be hard to imagine more fitting narrators for Poe’s classic horror tales than Price and Rathbone, two superb, classically trained actors who became household names starring in movies of suspense and mystery. Poe’s work is especially well-suited to audio, and these remastered, archival Caedmon recordings, originally released on phonograph records, showcase the two actors at their finest. Both Price and Rathbone perfectly convey the prototypical Poe narrator trying to come to grips with the horror he has experienced…This audio is an absolute must for Poe fans.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “These are superb renderings by the cornball ghoulish Price and filmdom’s most famous Sherlock Holmes, Basil Rathbone…It’s a romp for them and a delight for us.”


  • “Vincent Price and Rathbone, well-known actors, both perform excellently. Any serious collection of horror or detective fiction would not be complete without Poe’s works. Highly recommended.”
