Review by: PJ O'Brien on Dec. 17, 2015 :
The three stories in this collection are different in style, but each are quite good. It's the third collection by author Rufus Woodward that I've read, and all of them have been excellent. He has a lovely way of spinning a story, turning a phrase, evoking emotional responses, and building suspense. Whether the setting is in contemporary times (as The ShoreCliff Horror, the first story is) or in the style of a mythic timeless fairy tale (as the last story is), the narrative voice matches it very nicely.

Many of his stories have a very literary, almost poetic feel. Some (including those from other collections) remind me a little of some of Poe's. In fact, I thought of Woodward right away when I recently read about the Poe Museum's call for submission in Amy Sturgis' December 10 blog posting:

If he reads this in time, I do hope Woodward considers it. He's a very gifted author and I'm very happy to have stumbled across him. He's certainly on my watch list for reading as soon as he publishes anything else.

All of these stories are well-written; I enjoyed the first one despite it not being particularly scary. The second story was
less to my taste but still good, and the final story I didnt read at all. But that isnt to say that other people wont enjoy them all.
