1.0 out of 5 stars Nasty re-print with no Joshi introduction, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ancient Sorceries and Other Weird Stories (Paperback)
Do not order this edition if you want a Blackwood anthology presented in decent fashion. Despite the 'See Inside' preview indicating that this is the Penguin Classics edition with S. T. Joshi's introduction and notes, it is actually a bare-bones rush job by 'Digireads.com'.

It's housed in cheap cardstock and the stories themselves are printed with minimal margin space, further cheapening the experience. There is no introduction at all, and even the blurb on the back could be bettered by a schoolboy.

Like the nasty re-prints of Dunsany, this spartan money-grab shows no respect for its subject's elegant work, and should never have been printed.
