Only a minority of the stories are supernatural, but the rest are good nonetheless. More interesting romance than horror.

All these stories, in their own way, were love stories. Each had a piece or a feeling of the fantasy or horror world to them, yet they all had a "slice of life" quality to them as well. It was a unusual and nice blend that made for unique a world. His writer's voice was a large part of what gave it

There are a few collections with this name. I read the original 1896 edition. The first story is interesting enough, and some others were tolerable, but this is nowhere near as good as The King in Yellow. I wrote a more in-depth review on my blog if you're interested.

The title story was good and kinda creepy or at least atmospheric and conceptually interesting. The next 2 stories were bad and way too romantic and interpersonal. And I didn't even finish the rest. Very disappointing considering how good The King in Yellow was.
