    One thought on “Stories in the Dark (Black Heath Gothic, Sensation and Supernatural)”

    1. This rather obscure collection of stories has a couple gems in it, a few decent stories and some clunkers Published in 1901, this is right at the tail end of the Victorian era.The best tale by far is The Undying Thing which was praised by Lovecraft himself It s got a bit of a M R Jamesian flavor to it It s about a man haunted by a horrible thing which his ancestor s wife gave birth to and has haunted the place of it s burial ever since The Gray Cat is another decent story, a solid story in the v [...]

    2. The Undying Thing and The Gray Cat were decent enough but Pain didn t have the skill or subtlety to make them work The remaining stories belong to the attenuated, trailing edge of the fin de si cle and are instantly forgettable.

    3. Read so far The diary of a god This is all The moon slave 2The green light The magnet The case of Vincent Pyrwhit The bottom of the gulf The end of a show 1The undying thing The gray cat

    4. Diary of a God was genius Kept me with high expectations, but I was mostly disappointed with the other stories The Bottom of The Gulf was reminiscent of a Monty Python skit.
