"This recording features particularly chilling vocal characterizations of the vampire and Jonathan Harker, which add greatly to the dramatic horror of the story. A highly popular recording." review of DRACULA from The American Library Association BOOKLIST, December, 1980

"A superb short story, this marvelously crafted tale of horror and fantasy turns on a plot by a small group of Gypsies to wreak revenge and terror on the populace through the use of tiny, fiendish wooden mannequins armed with daggers dipped in poison. The story entices one instantly with its intrigue and incredible plot, and the recording captures the atmosphere of the story brilliantly, conveying the horror so well that the listener is nearly breathless by the time the ironic conclusion is reached. This gem from one of nineteenth-century America's finest short story writers will find a ready audience." review of "The Wondersmith" from The American Library Association BOOKLIST, 1980

"A gentleman out for a motorcar ride gets lost beyond the wooded hills and discovers a house, a garden, two shy children, and a beautiful but blind young woman who 'sees' and hears what ordinary people cannot. Only near the end of this Kipling story does the gentleman, who has visited the woman frequently, understand that 'they',the children of the tale, are not of this world. This spooky tale, read very well by these two talented narrators who consistently reveal the full impact of Kipling's text, will be an engaging addition to public, school, and college libraries." review of" They" from The American Library Association BOOKLIST, January, 1981

"A yellow eighteenth century composition for pianoforte and violin, passions for music and love, and the discovery of a prized but ominous Stradivarius lead one nineteenth century, Oxford trained musician into absorbing, soul-rattling and lifelong encounters with the supernatural and with evil - both within and without. This precise, feeling and thoughtful reading of Falkner's work stands solidly on its own without sound effects as Barkman and Roberts bring depth and elegance to this sad, mysterious saga and to such phrases as, 'the salt breath of the sea'." review of THE LOST STRADIVARIOUS from BOOKLIST magazine February 15, 1983

    For a whole bunch of reasons. For one thing, given the high price of most companies' book rentals, it doesn't cost all that much more and you don't have to worry about getting them back on time. When you're done you can lend them to friends, colleagues, relatives, the boss, etc. or donate them to tax-deductible organizations such as schools, libraries and hospitals. You make friends, influence people and get yourself a nice little deduction. A warning - most of our titles are worth a second or third listen. Lend them only to friends or relatives who are in the habit of returning things.
