What would Halloween be without something scary? In 1963 Mercury records released the Boris Karloff album “Tales of the Frightened.” The man who brought Frankenstein’s monster and the Mummy to the silver screen tells creepy tales in that familiar eerie voice just made to bring us chills. Along with creepy music and sound effects, Karloff opens each story with the words “Are you one of the frightened?” A copy of the album can scare up $75.00. Find the most up-to-date value of your records from Mighty John the Record Guy within 24 hours.

Besides being a well-known record appraiser, Mighty John the Record Guy is also an author. Order a signed copy of John’s first novel, “Stung!” and we’ll send you a free signed copy of John’s second novel, “The Garden of Eva.” You’ll find “Stung!” in the lower right hand column of this page. ($12.95) Rock music plays in the background of “Stung!” But the novel itself is in part a love story, in part a coming-of-age tale, but like those written by Mighty John’s one-time employer, Stephen King, it’s largely a book of horror. Or you can download “Stung!” on Kindle for $1.99.
