Lee has done readings of so much great stuff. I believe he has read all of M.R. James's work, and other weird fiction as well. Works of Poe... I can't wait to set some time aside and listen to these!

"Lee has done readings of so much great stuff."
Not to mention the supernaturally-tinged "The Hound of Death: And Other Stories" by Agatha Christie!

I have listened to these before, A++ highly recommend!

Lee and best mate Peter Cushing didn’t get to do much Sherlock Holmes together, but I also recommend 1959’s The Hound of the Baskervilles from Hammer Studios.

The Underpants Monster: Thought you might enjoy this Stephen Fry story. (And here's the song.)

My vaguely related anecdote. In the early 70s I lived in a beach house near Whitstable, Kent. The aforementioned, and then mostly retired, Peter Cushing was a neighbour and on Sundays I would sometimes be behind him in a queue at the convenience store while he paid for his pint of milk and newspaper and made small talk with the shopkeeper in that voice.

Anti-semitism warning for the first story link. Not Lee's fault, but Conan Doyle's.
