"Beautiful" Stories

I just realized that two different people have used some form of the word "beautiful" to describe my stories. In the e-mail accepting "Those from the Shadows" for publication in issue #14 of Bete Noire, the editor thanked me for putting a new spin on vampire lore and called the story a "beautiful piece". Over on the Anotherealm forum, a commenter called my fairy fantasy story "Father Ryan's Fright" published in Anotherealm back in November 2013 a "beautifully written Irish folk tale".

Here's a question: what words would you use to describe my horror short story "The Redcap of Glamtallon"? I'm not sure "beautiful" would be appropriate for that one. I know one person used the word "fascinating".
