...plus the two or three that aren't idle lol
As with many collections of stories, this one was mixed for me. I thought the first 3 stories were ok, but I really enjoyed the last 2. "The Room in the Dragon Volant" was a fascinating story and probably my favorite. "Carmilla" was the only story I knew of when I started, and I liked the opportunity to experience an early vampire story that has influenced so many others since.

I‘ve been listening to this one again the last few days and finished “The Room in the Dragon Volant” this evening. I had a hard time getting into this story, but I think it was just a matter of taking a while to sort out the characters on audio. Once I got into it, I really enjoyed the story and its gothic aspects.
Uh oh . . . according to “Green Tea,” frequently drinking green tea late at night may lead to visions of a spectral demonic monkey. No cup of tea for me tonight. 😂 🍵 🐒
I finished the first story of this collection on audio this morning and the second, “The Familiar,” this afternoon. Not my normal reading fare, but strangely interesting.
