    One thought on “Couching at the Door”

    1. An astonishingly good collection of stories by the obscure Broster Well worth seeking out The stories are never dull and there is enough variety here for a good read There isn t a dud in this slim volume and even the few stories sans the supernatural are fine The writing is literate and the romance never silly There is some uniqueness as well Broster has a fine feel for real suspense but I won t ruin the stories by any sort of plot synopsis.I sometimes find these volumes by obscure authors to be [...]

    2. Rounded up from 2.5 I have mixed feelings about this collection Some of the stories Couching at the Door , At the Abyss , Clairvoyance , The Promised Land are extremely good 5 stars The othersm.t so much One thing they are all is languorous Even the best stories take a long time to arrive, often to the point that I began wondering if anything would actually happen so be prepared I suspect that these stories work better if they are not all read at once.

    5. James Baker The main character in the book is a man named Augustine who is a poet The man meets people along the way to help with his poetry but along the way has seen many things a man should never see as he said along with some horror poems that he wrote to depict what was going on.The theme of the book is mostly be that when writing a type of story sometimes its best that you don t reenact what you want to write.One main thing is that there are lots of quotes to god in the book that relates t [...]

    6. I ve picked up several of the Wordsworth Mystery Supernatural books because they re cheap, attractive ways to get hold of a lot of classic and vintage supernatural stories.This particular collection was of stories I d never heard of by an author I d never heard of, but I found it quite enjoyable I particularly liked The Taste of Pomegranates and the surprisingly bloody Clairvoyance, though most of the stories were very good, and several were nicely inexplicable.

    7. This one is still on my want to read list, so there s no review here I did read the title story in another collection, Detection mystery and horror by Dorothy L Sayers
