Description

Orson Welles' remarkable career as director, producer, screenwriter, author, and actor may have caused some to forget his days in radio theater. This set is a wonderful reminder. Welles' marvelous voice, moving in pitch and tone, is closer to music than speech. Best of all are Welles' introductions to the stories, in particular that of H. G. Wells, as Orson recalls his historic radio reading of The War of the Worlds. A delightful collection and a tribute to Welles' talent.

Included in this collection:

"Wakefield" by Nathaniel Hawthorne"The Red Room" by H.G. Wells"The Secret Sharer" by Joseph Conrad"Sredni Vashtar" by Saki"Letter to the Reverend Dr. Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson"The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe"The Way through the Woods" by Rudyard Kipling "Mandalay" by Rudyard Kipling "Rikki-tikki-tavi" by Rudyard Kipling"The Happy Prince" by Oscar Wilde
