I started reading stories from this when I lost my book for a couple days. Decided to finish it but unfortunately it was a waste of time. Many of the stories just don't make any sense or have any kind of conclusion.

We Traverse Afar (with James P. Blaylock) - This was rather dark and not much really happened. About a widower, hanging out hating life. I guess there's supposed to be some hope in the last line but it didn't do much for me. (4.5)

The Better Boy (with James P. Blaylock) - Kind of absurd, southern, sci-fi ala -The Astronaut Farmer-. Not sure I completely understood the concept of th ether bunnies but it was kinda fun and there was a very touching moment near the end. (6.5)

Through and through - A priest has to decide whether he can peform rights to absolve a ghost of her sins. Never said what her actual sin was. No "punchline". (3.5)

The Way Down the Hill - Cool setup but very confusing because characters had their gender and then the gender of their body was often different. (6.5)

Night Moves - Very cool setup, interesting characters, but not real explanation. Quirky/distracting metaphors. (5.5)

Itinerary - Strange, not sure exactly what it was about, but seemed to be someone who was nuts telling a story, so it didn't really make sense (5.0)

Pat Moore - Gave up after about 10 pages. (1.0)

Where They Are Hid - Another I should have given up on. I hate time travel (1.0)

Fifty Cents - Might have been good if there was any kind of explanation, instead it was just a bunch of nonsense (1.0)

_The Stress of Her Regard_ is (still) pretty much my favorite Tim Powers book. It is exactly what you expect from Powers: an in-depth exploration of some literary ideas, poets, or authors, based on historical facts, but with ribbons of supernatural mystery winding through the gaps.

For Powers completists only. Not bad by any means, just very slight.

A gothic horror thriller set in Haworth in the 19thC starring the Brontës! They are fighting against the curse of the werewolf and encounter all types of supernatural and fantastical figures. It’s a race against time to stop a religious cult resurrecting something not very nice buried under an ogham inscribed slab in the church. Strange goings on in Yorkshire!

I wasn’t sure about this book when I first started it. The combination of the Brontës and werewolves didn’t really gel for me. So I parked the idea of the Brontës to a certain extent and just went with the flow. I then ended up enjoying it. It’s an unusual tale and very imaginatively written. I loved Keeper the dog, such a hero! It gave an interesting insight into the three sisters and their brother. I thought their individual personalities shone through very well. I wasn’t so keen on the idea of werewolves roaming the wild and wonderful Yorkshire Moors, it could put you off a relaxing walk through the gloriously colourful heather! I don’t think the sheep would be too keen, either. Nevertheless it had an exciting plotline and it kept me turning the pages. I would recommend it to historical fantasy fans, particularly those who like some extra magic mixed in with their reading.… (lisätietoja)
