Uneven. Several of the stories in this collection (Deep Holes, Dimensions) left me scratching my head and thinking huh. At times this book seemed to me to be perhaps cathartic indulgence. The writing itself is good. Perhaps it is just a matter of taste. My personal yardstick for comparison of darkish short stories is the work of Flannery O'Connor and Shirley Jackson.
