    1. I m so torn I m leaning toward like a 4.3 The book as a collection was great but in my opinion, not perfect One huge benefit of swimming out of the mainstream in my choice of books is that I occasionally come across collections like this one There are twenty four stories included in this volume, nineteen of which, according to editor Terry Hale, are making their English translation debut here the other five whose names may be familiar are represented by somewhat lesser known material The book i [...]

    2. Not all of these are horror stories in the traditional sense, in fact most aren t and quite a few of the conte cruel s are of the humorous variety.But while these aren t traditional horror stories they re certainly horrific, not because of ghosts or monsters but because of the unseemliness they explore The level of misanthropy here is delectable, and there s lots of guillotines, perverse sexual obsessions and occasionally a story with a thick Gothic atmosphere.Still I would say this collection i [...]

    3. Every short story in this book was better than the last with the exception of one This has it all, ghouls, corpses, cremations, burials, lots and lots of forlorn love and unrequainted love, butchery, fetish and necrophilic undertones and not to mention lots of be heading and guillotine aciton I love spooky stories but am naturally a coward so I seek out ones that still allow me to sleep at night This book is Old World Poe throughout and full of wit and comedy Some of these horror stories even ha [...]

    4. Some are but most are not great stories, and none is bad, either They re not fun as we understand fun today, but they are interesting and somehow deep They re their own thing Did you know Charles Baudelaire wrote fiction as well as poetry and non fiction There is a fine example here.I don t know if you will like this collection, but I do know one thing you deserve to know it.

    5. A fascinating and edifying mix of stories The big surprise is how much humor is used in so many of them Great resource.
