In his renown essay "Supernatural Horror in Literature," H. P. Lovecraft wrote: "In 'The Dead Valley' the eminent architect and mediævalist Ralph Adams Cram achieves a memorably potent degree of vague regional horror through subtleties of atmosphere and description."
It is not surprising to see Cram praised by Lovecraft; after reading these short tales, his influence on Lovecraft's writing is undeniable. In fact, the first story in the collection, "252 Rue M. Le Prince," seems particularly Lovecraftian and I think any fan of the Mythos would love this volume of Cram's weird fiction.
Notre Dame De Eaux wasn't super-good but it had some great imagery. I see by other reviews that he also wrote non-fiction. I haven't read any of them but he had a very precise eye for details and can really make a scene come alive.
The formatting is also done very well in the kindle edition, especially for being free.
Definitely a 5/5 and I only wish there were more ghost stories by this author.
