So given, that I recently read Ito's Voices in the Dark, I was compelled to also check out its successor; the New Voices in the Dark.

Considering most of Ito's work being short stories and the previous part being an anthology of those, I wasn't expecting much of continuity, but it turned out, that the very first segment of the book was in fact a direct sequel to the "Haunted House"-segment of the previous book. Unfortunately, I may add, because while the story in the previous volume had a bit of an anti-climactic-fan-service kind of ending, I was still satisfied with it, this first segment, however ...
