Single short stories published in anthologies/un-added books tracking post

At Crighton Abbey - Mary Elizabeth Braddon - liked

The Crooked Branch - Elizabeth Gaskell - Liked the language, not so much the story

A Warning to the Curious - MR James - liked

The Blush - Elizabeth Taylor - loved

Ligeia - Edgar Allen Poe - hated this - turgid, slow and not remotely chilling.
