    I really enjoyed the stories in the first part of the collection. The stories in the last part are more science fiction. Still interesting, but not what I would consider mysteries. The narration is good throughout, unlike with many collections.

    "Not all there"

    While the description helpfully itemizes the contents and associated readers, it is misleading in that neither The Poor Relation nor The Music on the Hill were found in the files I downloaded.

    "Stories Very Dated"

    Apart from the story about the race horses, which was very enjoyable, the stories are all very dated . They seem to ramble and be very verbose and not get to the story. Several presuppose a suspension of rational belief and a general belief in the supernatural which I do not believe is common today.
