New John Langan Collection

I've been a fan of John Langan for a long time - I particularly like his Mr Gaunt collection and his novel House of Windows - so I received his new short story collection Sefira and Other Betrayals with much excitement. But is it up to his usual extremely high standard?

On the whole Sefira... is a worthy addition to modern weird fiction, with plenty of variety in setting and tone despite the common theme of betrayal. Don't be put off if you don't like the opening novella, as you'd be missing out on a high-quality collection!
