42 Spooky Stories in Spotify


I’ve gathered a spooky collection of ghost stories, eerie poems, scary old radio shows and more for you. These are great listening for Halloween or any time you’re in the mood for a good scare!


Some of these are Spotify audio books, some are old performances, some are poetry readings, and some are recordings from radio’s golden years. You’ll find a little bit of overlap here, such as two versions of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a few different tales of Frankenstein, and multiple versions of different writings from Edgar Allen Poe. I’ve included these different versions because they were done in vastly different styles that each have their own appeal. So listen to a bit of each and choose the one that appeals the most to you.


I scoured through Spotify for many hours to dig up some of the greatest classic horror tales for you. Here you will find works from such authors as Bram Stoker, H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, M.R. James, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and Thomas Hardy. Orson Welles’ infamous War of the Worlds original broadcast is even included here.


Without any further ado, I present to you, 42 Spooky Stories, Poems, and Performances! Simply click on the cover or the text to open your selection in Spotify, enjoy!
