Opening lines:
In the cool blue twilight of two steep streets in Camden Town, the shop at the corner, a confectioner's glowed like the butt of a cigar. One should rather say, perhaps, like the butt of a firework, for the light was of many colors and some complexity, broken up by many mirrors and dancing on many gilt and gaily-coloured cakes and sweetmeats.

It was an alright audiobook, but I think I needed to reread it without the audiobook.

Nope. Not Ralph Ellison nor H.G. Wells. Let's just say the villain went postal.

I love stories where the facts lie in what you perceive rather than what you actually see for the difference is quite the blade between the ribs.

This poor rating is just for this one story. Not for the whole collection.

Hmmmm...It had some good points, speaking about class and appearance. But there wasn't anything particularly special about it.

I quite enjoyed this short read, smartly written, entertaining and mysterious until the end. Nice twist at the end.

Such an odd little story. There are parts that I really enjoy, but it's just so weird.
