Publisher's Summary

Listen to Can Such Things Be? with a movie-style soundtrack and amplify your audiobook experience.

Twenty-four short stories in fairly typical Bierce fashion - ghostly, spooky, to be listened to in the dark, perhaps with a light, crackling fire burning dimly in the background. Stories of ghosts, apparitions, and strange, inexplicable occurrences are prevalent in these tales, some of which occur on or near Civil War fields of battle, some in country cottages, and some within urban areas. Can Such Things Be? implies and relates that anything is possible, at any time.

I don’t think much of either the stories or the performance. The voice talent sounds like the old nature documentary narrators. And, the stories set up supernatural situations that end abruptly with a punch-line each time, just when they are getting interesting.
