To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all this is an anthology of different writers so some of the questions listed are hard to apply. In saying that, now, I had never heard of Thomas Ligotti whose style, like Lovecraft's, has spawned others to write in his style. I must confess that I got this book based upon the cover art that intrigued me. And glad I did because the stories between these covers are very compelling and draws one in with their dark weirdness, strange creatures and situations and leave you wanting more. I think that I must do now is do a search on some of Ligotti's original writings to read. If one likes good horror mixed with intriguing weirdness and atmosphere, they can't go wrong in purchasing this collection
