Sometimes even short stories can drag on and on and on in spots.
This story seemed to apply a couple of what I always thought of as vampire traits and habits to werewolves as well. Holy water and needing to be invited in. How she lured them was interesting. She didn't just hope they wandered into the woods. She singled them out.
Good little story, though it waxed a bit heavily into the religious at the very end.
And I have no idea who thought this was a good choice for the cover for this edition of the book, But it doesn't fit at all. LOL There was no ocean or ships. Everything was frozen, apparently in the dead of winter. I got my copy from Gutenberg.
