For among those lie a global of outstanding, succint, witty, soft, and sometimes terrible tales fairly in contrast to any others.
If there's a extra concise and potent brief horror story than Hartley's "Podolo" i'm really not conscious of it. It moves me as a piece of near-perfection, so far as such issues move. .. and with no overstating its artistry. Others are a bit much less finely learned, similar to "The Island" but are nonetheless well-wrought & gripping. "
