Praise for J B Priestly Audiobook Short Stories

“These stories say something meaningful, as well as relate an anecdote. They are not only examples of narrative skill, but exhibitions of social truth.” – Saturday Review

“Priestley is one of the finest and most popular storytellers of the last hundred years. We are now aware many of his stories have a prophetic quality.” – Dame Margaret Drabble

“[H]ighly readable and provocative.” – Sunday Herald (Sydney)

About The Author

J. B. Priestley (1894-1984) was a versatile and prolific novelist and playwright, but in The Other Place (1953), he shows an unexpected talent, proving himself a master of the weird tale. In “The Grey Ones,” Mr. Patson visits a psychiatrist after he becomes convinced that a race of demons masquerading as men are plotting the overthrow of the human race . . . but what if he’s not insane? In “Guest of Honour,” a banquet speech becomes a horrifying affair when the keynote speaker realizes his audience is made up of monstrous and menacing creatures. “The Leadington Incident” recounts the disturbing experience of a Cabinet minister who suddenly perceives that though the people around him move and talk as though alive, they are all actually just animated corpses or sleepwalking zombies. The nine tales in this collection are strange, fantastic, and often unsettling, and they represent Priestley at his best.

  1. I primarily (wrongly, it turns out) think of J B Priestley as a dramatist because of ‘An Inspector Calls’. However, his ear for speech and his flair for dramatic dialogue are still evident in this collection of macabre short stories. ‘The Grey Ones’, for example, is a conversation between a psychiatrist and his patient – a man convinced society is being subsumed by a soul-crushing, fun-sucking bureaucratic elite – while the title story is essentially a monologue.

    As such, the audiobook requires a voice actor able to bring Priestley’s characterful speech to life. I’m pleased to say that ‘The Other Place, and other stories of the same sort’ is one of the most delightful audiobook experiences I’ve had. Sometimes I find audiobook narration sleep-inducingly robotic, sometimes overdone. Here, David Sweeney-Bear achieves the perfect balance: distinctive character voices without sacrificing clear diction and well-paced delivery, and a perfectly realised sense of drama. The first five stories were as compelling as any television drama I’ve seen recently.

    Highly recommended if you, like me, have acquired the taste for ‘strange stories’ in the vein of Robert Aickman, L P Hartley, H G Wells et al.
