A v nice review of Strange Tales III:

I will mention first the three stories which struck me as really outstanding. Nina Allan’s The Lammas Worm is an extraordinary piece told in an exceptionally captivating narrative style, revolving around old unwholesome myths and featuring a weird girl who joins a circus company, bringing  about trouble and tragedy.  Sanctuary Run by Daniel Mills,  where a young man seeking refuge from a snow blizzard becomes the guest of  a strange community, is dedicated to Robert Aickman and  does have an Aickmanesque tone, disquieting in a puzzling way and  totally fascinating, especially for the  things left  either unsaid or unexplained. I was also bewitched by Angela Slatter’s  Sister, Sister, a vivid, powerful fantasy where a former princess is abandoned by her husband for her wicked, inhuman sister.

The rest lives here http://www.bookgeeks.co.uk/2010/01/29/mario%E2%80%99s-review-strange-tales-volume-iii-edited-by-rosalie-parker/
