It was difficult to decide how many stars to give this book. It is a collection of four short works, but of varying quality. The Great God Pan is outstanding. The Inmost Light is enjoyable also. I liked The White People, but it was a little longer than it needed to be. A Fragment of Life had to be one of the slowest moving, most boring, purposeless short works I have ever read. If I had read this one first, I might not have continued the book. Overall I enjoyed The House of Souls and will read some more of this author's titles.
