If you are a John Crowley fan, then this collection is well worth having. Ranging from folklore to timetravel, Crowley's familiar concerns with memory and how we perceive our past and those we share it with are evident throughout. The standout story for me was 'Great Work of Time', a 'what if?' scenario narrated by a young man recruited into a secret society, whose mission is to keep the British Empire great - with unforseen consequences.
