Just started; I'd read a couple of these before, but long enough ago that I decided it was worth a reread. The ones that are new to me seem plain--not in a bad way, but plain in the way M.R. James is quiet.
The later stories in the book are slightly weirder; there's the same calm explanation as always, it's just relating how reality is doing a quiet little fever-dream melt and slip. They never quite end up portraying the misunderstandings of a character as reality, though--it's something I associate very much with Ramsey Campbell, and with him writing the introduction, I was a bit anxious about the possibility. (Please understand; I like
Campbell's writing, but I'd settled into the quiet ghost story mood of he collection, and I don't think the style would have fit.)
