A read of the century,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Weird: A Compendium of Strange and Dark Stories (Hardcover)
My order for the book was placed as soon as the release date of the hardback copy was announced way back in January of 2012.
The contents of this Compendium are a joy for the eyes to behold, stories that will last forever.
The Weird, Strange and Dark tales within it`s 1120 pages will see me it`s owner reading late in to future nights until all pages are read.
My only reason to criticise this book is the quality of it`s paper used, I expected better then it`s disappointing paperback standard.
A finer class of paper for such a hardback such as this would have been more appropriately appreciated by it`s readers, lastly a fixed bookmark ribbon would not have gone a miss.
A missed opportune moment by the publisher Corvus who choose rather to save a few odd pennies.
Small points of complaint to the few but to me important ones when owning a future classic hardback rather then just a simple paperback runabout.
Enjoy the read , the stories will not disappoint the readers.
