Aickmans strange stories (his preferred term for them) are a subtle exploration of psychological displacement and paranoia.

His characters are ordinary people that are gradually drawn into the darker recesses of their own minds. First published in the USA in 1988 and in the UK in 1990 The Wine-Dark Sea contains eight stories that will leave the reader unsettled as the protagonists fears and desires, at once illogical and terrifying, culminate in a disturbing yet enigmatic ending. For fans of the horror genre Robert Aickman is a must read. As Peter Straub notes in his introduction Aickmans originality was rooted in need - he had to write these stories, and that is why they are worth reading and rereading.

Superb tales of suspenseful unease . . . a contemporary master of the genre. Publishers Weekly Aickmans effects are so concentrated youll be well advised not to read more than one story at a time. Books
