Vincent Price - A Hornbook for Witches

What would Halloween be without a visit from Vincent Price?

Before we go any further, I have to stop for a sec to talk about this amazing album cover. It looks like something right out of a D&D manual.

Turn up the volume. And turn down the lights - If you dare!

Suspense-master Vincent Price presents a hair-raising, bone-chilling collection of classic horror tales featuring a ghastly brew of witches, ghosts and goblins. Edgar Allan Poe's eerie Dreamland, John Collier's offbeat Thus I Refute Beezly, and Mariažs Leech's practical but frightful How to See Ghosts or Surely Bring Them to You, are just a few of the tales stirring up fear in this chilling concoction of horror. These stories, sounds, spells, and incantations will send shivers up you spine

 This album features four poems from the original work, A Hornbook for Witches: Poems of Fantasy, that was released in 1950. It is likely the rarest book published by Arkham House as only 553 copies were printed and 300 of those went to the author!

You can read the book online if you wish.
 If you prefer portable audio, click on the album cover to drop it in your treat bag.
Alternatively, you can listen to it on YouTube.
