James's fourth collection of stories. Just as good as the other 3. This one contains probably my favorite story by him so far about a haunted dollhouse where a grisly scene is recreated right before the owner's eyes. I loved it

Nobody writes like Lord Dunsany. A true original. I've never experienced anything quite like it before. These stories are similar in vein to his other volumes I've read so far but as the title implies all are of a dreamy surreal nature and just as a dream in its fantastic way mirrors our own reality often in a poetic way, so do these stories. Dunsany's writing paints a picture for the reader. True beauty is to be found here. These works are so different, hard to explain. Words do not justify them

More great stories by Maupassant. I guess after reading seven volumes of his stories so far, his main topic is the relations between the sexes but there are other intersting topics as well and each story seems different to me than any of the others.

This volume contains the remaining stories Blackwood wrote about his psychical investigator John Silence and once again my only problem with them is they are a little drawn out and could have been condensed a little to better effect. There is a story here of a young man who returns to his religious school from childhhod, which is actually run by demons; one in which campers are plagued by a werewolf and one in which a man finds a way into the fourth dimension. Intriguing

Two men find some mysterious arrowheads by one of their doors leading them to investigate and discover the human sacrifice of a missing girl by a race of miniature savages.Arthur Machen, Welsh mystic writer, once again pulls back the veil to reveal what lies just beneath the surface of our ordinary humdrum mortal world. He is a master of the weird tale but I'm not sure if it's just me but he seems convinced of the possibilty of everything he writes being totally possible and the way in which he deftly presents it makes me wonder if it actually is possible. Machen was a genius.
