Description


'Reading Robert Aickman is like watching a magician work, and very often I'm not even sure what the trick was. All I know is that he did it beautifully.' Neil Gaiman

For fans of the BBC's Inside Number 9 and The League of Gentlemen

Aickman's 'strange stories' (his preferred term) are constructed immaculately, the neuroses of his characters painted in subtle shades. He builds dread by the steady accrual of realistic detail, until the reader realises that the protagonist is heading towards their doom as if in a dream.

The Unsettled Dust was first published as a collection in 1990. Aickman received the British Fantasy Award for 'The Stains'.

'We are all potential victims of the powers Aickman so skilfully conjures and commands.' Robert Bloch
