"Novelties & Souvenirs: Collected Short Fiction" by John Crowley

I'm reading "Novelties & Souvenirs: Collected Short Fiction" by John Crowley. Some of the stories I have in other collections. But the stories aren't what I remember them to be. Unfortunately many of John Crowley's stories are about the past changing so it never was what you remember it to be. So my experience of his stories not being what I remember them to be is very much like living one of his stories. The irony does not escape me.

I need to dig out my other collections and see if the stories are actually different or if I'm just misremembering them. He writes very densely. It's possible I just missed things in the first reading that are just becoming apparent to me now.
