The five stars is for the podcast of these stories, where the headlong first person narration really works well. These stories have great atmosphere and really memorable and creepy imagery. Most of them follow a similar arc, with a narrator getting drawn into some weird situation that escalates into a nightmarish extreme. Like the narrators, the reader / listener is usually left without any solid explanation for what takes place, which leaves a lingering sense of unease instead of any real sense of closure at the end of the stories.
