I've read half a dozen or so stories from A Collapse of Horses and I find that he can write some quite impressive stories.

When you read about Evenson's work you will hear many mentions about his prose - which is a far cry from the often laboriously bloated and unwieldy prose of many weird fiction authors. Rich yet very succinct.

His horror is a type wrapped in neuroticism, paranoia, and surrealism. Highly recommended. "Click" should have an especial interest in Ligotti readers, I think.
