The lighter tales in the book, such as the Forbidden Fruit and Made in Goatswood, are quite enjoyable. The Sentinels was probably the best story for me, thanks to the incredibly eerie images that it brought to mind. The setting of this one was fantastic, the suspense nearly overwhelming. If the rest were like this, I'd have to think about whether to give the book four or five stars.
Although I'm not a fan of this collection as a whole, the few bright spots for me were time well spent, and I still got plenty of hope for Dark Companions, and for Campbell in general.
Written early in his career, these stories show the potential that Campbell had as an author and one can see how he has achieved the status he has as a great horror writer. A hard to find book at the time of this review, but there are still copies floating around for reasonable prices. When you do find a copy of this book at a good price, dont hesitate, just get it.
As a fan of either horror or Campbell, you will not be disappointed.
Also the stories continue to keep you confused all the way to the so called endings.
If you like reading a bunch of ramblings stories that will never give you closure then this is for you.
I personally wished i never read it.
The End of a Summer's Day
At First Sight
The Franklyn Paragraphs
The Old Horns
The Second Staircase
The Enchanted Fruit
Made in Goatswood
Standout tales include "The Interloper" (a school inspector turns out to be......????), "The Old Horns" (a seaside disappearance leads to a fleeting pagan visitation), and, best of all in my opinion, "The Sentinels" (a hilltop circle of stone statues is accompanied by some inexplicable addition).
It is scandalous that this nigh perfect collection seems to be no longer available.
