What would have made Poe's Children better?
Stories that made sense and were actually scary instead of just tedious and weird
Has Poe's Children turned you off from other books in this genre?
Would you be willing to try another one of Various’s performances?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Poe's Children?
Every story after the 1st. I felt like it was bait and switch
Any additional comments?
I will be returning this book. I tried several times to get into it. Skipped ahead and listened to several stories over a period a several weeks. I'm sorry to it was more of the same boring, weird stories that made absolutely no sense. If I could choose a (-) star to rate this I would

Of all the stories I heard, the first one was the best. I didn't think it was great but it was decent and mildly unsettling. I listened to two more afterwards and both seemed endless and went nowhere. It was one of the rare times I desperately wished to be able to flip ahead and see how many more pages there were left to go. They weren't horror stories so much as bizarrely conceived expositions on the horror that is a part of us all and can take many forms and blah blah blah.. I hated it, but I also didn't finish it. Maybe some works of genius were hiding towards the end.
