    Just finished reading "More Tales of the Callamo Mountains," by Larry Blamire, which I liked just as much as the first volume. Particularly "Mouth of the Shy Lee," "The Quiet Farm," (so sad, and a great example of subtlety and ambiguity while still being entirely clear. I was reminded of the long sequence in the novel "Frankenstein" when the monster is providing firewood for the blind man's family), "The Valley of Capper Crabb," (which has the inexorable logic of a Grimm fairy tale) and "The Trappers," which manages to be both incredibly creepy and provides an - almost - logical realistic explanation for the supernatural happenings of Blackwood's "The Wendigo," my all-time favorite example of this kind of story. "Bright Hawk Takes A Walk" was told in an entirely different voice, as if an ethnographer telling an old Indian story; and "Glooney Fixit" resembles an ancient fable, like "The Pied... More > Piper," but told by an inmate of Dr. Caligari's Cabinet. I have to mention, from a story whose title I won't say, my favorite last line in the whole book: "Unless you want to stay another day." If you're a fan of Arthur Machen, William Hope Hodgeson, H.P. Lovecraft or Algernon Blackwood, you're sure to enjoy "More Tales of the Callamo Mountains."< Less
