Not what I was expecting at all. Some of the stories contained some humour, some were rather sad, a few were actually spooky(!)--kinda in "Turn of the Screw" territory. My favourite was the last story "Coquelicot", which wasn't in the original collection. Tracy Ware's afterword put things in perspective. Seven and a half stars. Blog post to come.
