Shirley Jackson is getting renewed attention ad affection, and this collection is a nice companion to her classic story "The Lottery." (That short story is not in this collection. You'll need to but The Lottery and Other Stories" for that enduring gem.)

Each tale here is, indeed, tinged with shadow and the sinister. Psychological horror without monsters, but the occasional spirit makes an appearance.

Each story hold up and reads quickly, but you can savor each, as well. I found myself re-reading passages and entire stories to feel a warm...chill(?) settle in, if that makes sense.
