    Some gems. Some less than riveting tales. Worth the read if you life ekphrastic horror stories.

    She writes like Cezanne paints, lots of colors and probably pretty shocking for its time. Is this review pretentious sounding? Probably, but still true. Loved it.

    Equal parts travelogue, religious/art history primer, and gothic horror. Comprised of 6 short stories: Prince Alberic and the Snake Lady A Wedding Chest Amour Dure A Wicked Voice, The Legend of Madame Krasinska, The Virgin of the Seven Daggers. Of these, Amour Dure was especially captivating, I savored every page. A Wedding Chest was a bit of a low point, but perhaps that is only when compared to the other evocative stories here. If you stumble across this tome in a used bookstore like I did, pi Equal parts travelogue, religious/art history primer, and gothic horror.

    It's safe to say I'm pretty bummed that I bought this book. It's supposed to be short-story horror, which is my FAVORITE. These stories were written in the late 1800's/early 1900's and I've read plenty of horror from that time period, so I knew what to expect. However I just felt super let down by all of these. I honestly didn't truly enjoy any of them. The only one I felt was halfway decent was the Snake Lady story... but I mean it still wasn't great. I'll probably only end up keeping this one It's safe to say I'm pretty bummed that I bought this book. It's supposed to be short-story horror, which is my FAVORITE.

    Abandoned. It's a collection of short stories from I think the eighteen hundreds. The first three I read were all about Italian renaissance families and I just don't give a shit. nothing get's weird enough to really hold my attention and it is just a chore to read. I might give it another shot some day, but I have books I'm more interested in reading waiting to be read. Abandoned. It's a collection of short stories from I think the eighteen hundreds.

    It was alright. Although I quite like Poe; this collection isn't quite in the same league. The two stories I enjoyed the most were the first (about the snake lady) and the third (amore dure). The rest were pretty mediocre experiences for me. It was alright. Although I quite like Poe; this collection isn't quite in the same league.
