The Fantastic Dr. Doyle!

目前正在读以前下载的 Tales of Terror and Mystery,刚把前半部分 Tales of Terror 给读完了 ---

Thrilling! 这就是所谓的 "compulsively readable",或者,照王朔的说法,是那种拿在手里就放不下,上厕所也要随身带着的故事书。Ah, when it comes to describing spine-chilling suspense and horror, no one is as skilled as the good doctor. 哇哇哇,正是我喜欢的类型!其实具体情节不算极其可怕,可怕程度刚刚够我承受,卖点在于细腻地描写烘托出的紧张或诡异的气氛!!

很有意思的是,这些短篇放在今天分类,有些最接近科幻类,有些可以算恐怖类,有些则是不带神异成分的 thriller 类型。超好看,很久没有享受如此纯粹的娱乐了。
