(2.5 stars)

Some of these stories are very good, but the majority are not so. What I found particularly frustrating is that many of them don't go anywhere. The author sets the scene, introduces some strange occurrence or circumstance, and the Big Reveal is that the weirdness is something spooky--big let-down.

several repeated stories

(4.5 stars)

Good readers, but there is a limited number of stories. I still enjoy the book because readers make the repeated stories still interesting with different reading styles.
