[ Books ] Into the London Fog (various, edited by E. Dearnley

Into the London Fog: Eerie Tales from the Weird City (British Library Tales of the Weird Book 16)Into the London Fog: Eerie Tales from the Weird City by Elizabeth Dearnley

A collection of short stories based around the theme of the London pea-super fog. I found it rather uneven and perhaps oddly I found the couple of essays (one by Virginia Woolf, one by Claude McKay, fair more interesting than the stories, which I would have loved when I was 14 but at this point I found rather predictable and so-so; not terrible but not that very exciting. Still, enough of the book is a good read that it is work the while. And of course you might have different tastes and not agree with me.
