Audiobook of classic mystery/horror short stories, all written between 1840-1910, and all that implies. The advantage of the audio is that the modern reader must experience the stories as intended, but with excellent professional narrators. The disadvantage is that the modern reader can’t skim through the boring parts to get to the good stuff as you normally could when reading the text version.
